This is a sales brochure advertising Accles Turrell motor cars for sale. The photo is of Ernest Clement Skurray and his head mechanic seated in an Accles Turrell car. It was taken in 1899 when Ernest Skurray entered in to a contract to buy and sell these cars. It is believed that this was the first formal contract for the sale of cars in the UK and Skurrays were the first motor dealers in this country. On the back of the brochure are details about the car including the fact that the car had seven horse power and went 21 miles per hour. Skurrays went on to sell many other makes of car. Ernest Skurray was involved in the Skurrays business until his death in 1940. His family continued in the business until 1960 when they sold their interest. But the Skurray name continues today as the business is still selling cars in Swindon, making Skurrays one of the oldest motor traders trading under the same name.
