John,

I am married to the granddaughter of the photographer, Commander Arthur FitzGerald Cochrane, and we would really like to chat about the contents of those tin trunks.  We think that they were probably passed to you after the death of Peter Cochrane (my wife's uncle) who lived at 761 London Road, Sarnia, Ontario and who died in 2000.  My email address is stuart.melvin@btinternet.com.  Look forward to hearing from you.  Thanks.
