The Paul Butler Collection was left in some disarray
following Paul's sudden death in June 1991.
In 1993 The Australian Motorlife Museum (AMM)
was encouraged to apply to be considered a beneficiary.
In 2000 the AMM was invited to participate in a series of mediation conferences
intended to conclude with a destination for the collection.
In 2000 the AMM was formally contracted by the Executors, as a result of these three mediation conferences, to 'sort, clean, identify, catalogue, pack and store for twelve months' the contents of the two houses, yards and motor house
known as 1 and 3 Darley Road, Randwick.
The following photographs illustrated
show the collection in storage before removal to
The Australian Motorlife Museum in
March / April 2009
The entire collection is now in the possession of
The Australian Motorlife Museum and in conjunction
with the Deed of Settlement which has been approved by the
Supreme Court ( 23/03/2009) will be presently
stored and place on display.
Much material from the collection is already on display
and extensions to the museum are now progressing.
