  • CA MNBM ID2472
  • Collection
  • 1877-1934

The collection consists of the typescripts of 2 papers delivered by Wetmore, newspaper photographs, a legal document, and printed material about the metric system. One of the papers, delivered to the Fortnightly Club in Saint John on 18 February 1934, contains a wealth of information about buildings (architecture) in Saint John. The other paper, delivered 4 May 1914 to the Saint John Board of Trade, discusses the advantages of the metric system. Copies of this paper may have been sent with the Saint John Board of Trade's resolution on adoption of the metric system to Dr. J.W. Daniel, M.P., and to the Inland Revenue Department and the Decimal Association in London, England.

There are also photographs clipped from the Saint John "Evening Times Globe", sometime in the 1930s, showing Breeze's Corner (location is present day Bank of Nova Scotia, Charlotte Street) as it appeared in the 1930s and during the 1880s.

There is a contract, 1877, between John Magee of Saint John and H.H. Bowie & Co. of Montreal, Quebec for the construction of a villa, of brick and stone, at Mecklenburg Terrace. The architects were Croff & Camp, of New York. Details of construction, materials, and costs are provided. A John Magee was living at 17 Mecklenburg Street shortly before the fire which destroyed much of Saint John in 1877 and he is likely the same individual.

There is a typed copy of an Act to amend the Weights and Measures Act, pertaining to the metric system. There is also a copy of the resolution adopted by the Senate of the University of Toronto, 12 November 1913, in support of the metric system A few letters (1914) addressed to Allan Wetmore from the Federal Government of Canada regarding the metric system are included in this collection.
