Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

So it was my usual "Sunday-morning-the-kids-are-still-asleep-so-I-can-think-about-wargaming" time, and I was searching for uniform information for a force of colonial Sikh infantry that I'm working on...and this mouth-watering image came up on my screen.  Apparently this is a collection of around 1000!? Britans hollow cast figures that was donated to a local museum by a single family up in New Brunswick, Canada. There is only this picture on the website but any of you are up in that area it might be worth a look.

I'm sure there are larger collections out there, (Malcom Forbes comes to mind) but you hardly ever get to see images of them. The Forbes collection had nearly 100,000 figures in it but it was sold off in parts to various collectors...and sadly they don't get played with.
