Percy Markham Collection Auction Catalogue 1990

In 1990 the Western Australian government sold off a significant part of the Percy Markham car collection, which had earlier been donated to the West Australian Museum. The decision to sell the collection was quite controversial. 11 of the 12 cars auctioned were Percy's cars. Two of the cars are still with the Motoring Museum, the 1898 Star and the 1911 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Laudaulet.

I'd like to thank motoring writer Paul Blank for sharing with me this copy of the auction catalogue.
