Paul Kelsey accumulated a collection of antique automobiles beginning in 1928, according to the introduction to the museum's catalogue published in April 1955.

A number of these vehicles were steam powered and came to the attention of the Virtual Steam Car Museum through its postcard collection.

The pages below came from the booklet probably sold at Kelsey's Collection.
