A large collection is on display, and being sold by public auction in St. John’s. It has garnered the attention of hundreds of people both in person, and online
Many of the contents have provenance in Harbour Grace, to where John Munn emigrated from Rothesay, Bute, Scotland. In addition, there are items with Brigus provenance through the Munden family as the Munden’s of Brigus were connected to the Munn’s of Harbour Grace by marriage.
Other contents come from the Baird family. James C. Baird, who emigrated from Scotland in 1844 and established himself as one of the more prominent merchants in St. John’s, and some family members still manage the company premises at Baird’s Cove. Some of the contents came from the Baird summer home, Bryn Mawr. That house was lost by fire in Dec 2022.
