About this object

These are the ledger and docket books from the Wyndham Sale Yards.

The Sale Yard Book has yard dues written in ink on the front cover. The dockets run from 16 June 1965 to the final entry on 31 March 1971.

The large fabric covered ledger starts from 1 September 1937 and the final entry is 31 September 1982. There are several loose saleyard dockets inside the ledger and a copy of the Wyndham Saleyards Company Limited - Directors Report and Statement of Accounts for year ended 30 September 1992.

Menzies College Rugby Committee eventually bought the sale yards and dismantled them, selling the timber and grandstand as a means of fundraising.
