An important two-day auction of Automobilia – 17 and 18 November 2020 – and a mystery car identified

Peter Card, doyen of the SAHB and well-known as an auctioneer of fine examples of automobilia, has sent us details of his auction that will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday 17 and 18 November in Crewkerne, Somerset.

This two-day sale will be of two celebrated collections: The Bryan Goodman photographic archive and the John Maitland library, and a good one-owner Collection of Early Cycling.

Our headline picture is from the Bryan Goodman auction: a stunning image of a car driven by a young lady.  We didn’t know the make, but Anders Clausgaer came to the rescue very quickly.  It is a Georges Roy from around 1920, powered by a conventional 3-litre four.  It was one of those provincial French makes that never gained much reputation outside its local market, in this case Bordeaux where the cars were built from 1906 to 1929.

The auction will be in association with Lawrences, The Linen Yard, Crewkerne, Somerset.

Catalogues will be available in late October from:

Peter Card, Budds Fram, Barrington, Somerset, TA19 0JB.

Telephone: 01460 55955.



Here is the advertisement for the whole two-day sale:

And here is the poster for the second day, when the Bryan Goodman collection will be auctioned.  It contains this beautiful image from the collection, of Charles Rolls on his 1902 Mors:
