In order to get the garage ship-shape for a studio we had to open the walls up and add framing on the interior. We’ve found a few interesting things (a ladies undershirt, a tin tray) but my favorite so far is this license plate that Sean discovered.
We gave it a good scrubbing and now it lives above the sink against the window that looks out onto the garage. Can you see the year? 1924. Isn’t that crazy? Our house was built in 1920 we think – did the car belong to the first owner of our house? Or was it even a car? Maybe more likely a work truck in our neighborhood. It’s fun to imagine all the history of our little house. The top of the plate says 35H.P. or less. 35 horsepower! SO fast! Ironically our city wide speed limit is now 25mph.
I like having a little reminder of our house’s early occupants.
