Citroen DS trunk mystery solved

Thanks to Ed (Belgium). He says:

I know what is in the DS trunk, I had read it somewhere: it is the weekly pay envelopes. The DS with a safe in the trunk was used to deliver the worker's pay in cash directly at their workplace. You can see the wooden cases are marked "Nanterre", "Asnières", ... different Citroën premises in the Paris region.

I might have a chance to look at a DS down in RI tomorrow! I've never really been close to one in person before.

@Zack: Have fun! It is simply amazing and 50 years ahead of its time. That's half a century!
