Envelope hidden in the file cabinet

Envelope hidden in the file cabinet

Looking into the file cabinet, I stuck my camera IN the drawer, and took shots both up and down, looking for hidden objects (as drawers commonly have items hidden behind them). Indeed, I found this manila envelope which contained tax return information. The filing cabinets contained troves of paystubs, returned checks, and bills. He worked for the American Broadcasting Company as a technician of some sort, and also did freelance work on the side, as evidenced by paystubs and contracts. One contract detailed the sale of a device called a "Swobulator", a sound effects machine, which he sold for a whopping US$36,000, in 1960's money.
