Items catalogued so far include hundreds of antiques, rare books, pieces of art carefully displayed, part of a trove that included a suit of armour, a large oil painting of a seascape, old marriage certificates and papers associated with the historic schooner, the Bluenose.
You can read more and see pictures of a few of the items in an article by Bruce Campion-Smith in The Star at http://goo.gl/bqOIc.
Note the suits of armor in the pictures. Doesn't everyone have suits of armor in their homes?
My thanks to newsletter reader Herb Proudley for telling me about this article.
