John and Jenny Hall – Brooklin Founders

Postings on the Facebook page of a Canadian model shop, Minigrid, bring news that John and Jenny Hall who founded Brooklin Models passed away on December 20th 2016. There are no further details.

John and Jenny Hall created Brooklin models in Canada modelling the American cars that John loved. They returned to the UK in 1979 and grew the Brooklin Models business until they sold it in 1998 to the current owners. They then emigrated to Vancouver Island and then to to Australia to be near their family.

Their contribution to the world of model collecting was substantial and I am sure that there will be considerable sadness at their passing.
