GARAGE BUILT OF AUTO TAGS IS PROOF AGAINST RUST (Jun, 1924)

GARAGE BUILT OF AUTO TAGS IS PROOF AGAINST RUST

Tightly sheathed on roof and sides with unused automobile license tags, a serviceable garage, seventeen feet square and ten feet high, with space for two cars has been built in Denver, Colo. The tags’ were obtained from a surplus of 22,000 left over in the office of the secretary of state. More than 10,000 of the plates, which are rust-proof, were required to cover the structure. They were laid overlapping like shingles upon a rough board siding and a layer of tar paper. A coat of paint was applied to obliterate the numbers.

    If someone did this now, they’d leave it unpainted and call it an art installation.

    I’d have at least put the numbers in sequence…

    This probably got torn down during a WW2 scrap drive.
