Great Find

I know that this photo is off the gardening subject but I am very excited about this find. My house was built in 1922 and since moving into the house we have always hoped to find something that dates way back. We are in the process of painting our concrete basement walls and floor and this morning I fould this licence plate in a space between the top of a wall and the main floor of the house. This is a wonderful find and what I find amazing is that our house number is 161 which is the first three numbers on the plate.

Wow! A great find! Springfield was the home for the first Rolls Royce of America plant in 1921 - can't you imagine that plate on a Rolls?
