It is always interesting to see the little bits of history folks leave behind. This collection of old license plates is located on the side of a machine shed / work shop in the area. I used to visit occasionally with Marvin, the man who owned the farm. He was still active around the place even though he was somewhat over 80 years old.
I have often wondered whether or not there was any significance to placing the license plates here or if it was merely something to do with them. Guess that will remain a mystery, though, a unique quirk from the past.
