Original Vanity License Plates (Jan, 1938)

Words, Not Numbers,Grace New License Plates
Names, abbreviations, and short words, real or made up, replace numerals on a new form of license plate proposed by Walter W. Hinton, of New York City. By using actual words on car plates, the inventor believes, they will be easier to read, and will make a distinct impression on the mind, thereby making them easier for owners and others to recall.
