it was a personal thrill to see and experience hands on so much really unique furniture, lamps, books, paintings etc.. A time capsule if you will.

Simple things make for particular highlights. Found in one of the closets were copies of the Vancouver Sun from 1952 and 1953 used as shelf liners.

The front page headline on one of them – ‘Eva Peron Dies’. It had a beautiful picture of her and of course the write up. Fantastic stuff!

It’s one of the truly exciting benefits of working with estates.
