Memory Lane: 85 Years of Saskatchewan License Plates

This book showed up in my mailbox at school the other day courtesy “The Book Fairy”.  Can you imagine why a library in our nation's capital would ever get rid of such a treasure?  Me either.  It's a limited edition too – this copy is #260 of 1000. 

Lots of interesting trivia, colour photos and fascinating history.  But the coolest thing is a list of the 823 licenses issued in the province up to March 31, 1911 with the owner's name, hometown and model of car.  Lots of familiar family names from Indian Head but nothing on any of my ancestors, at least from that community (haven't scanned for my maternal side yet.)
