1916 to 1935 PA Plate Display of 3000, 3001 and 3002 plates.

These plates were up for auction on ebay recently and the owner, bongocruiser2, allowed me to use the photos.  The plates had come from an estate sale.

 

Obviously there had to be a story behind this long succession of plates.  The 1917 plate registry indicated that the number 3000 plate was registered to Guy W. Moore, 296 Wyoming Ave., Kingston, PA.  A census search showed that he was 72 years old on the 1940 census, making him 49 in 1917.  He was a leading figure in the newspaper and banking business in the area.  He also owned a unique Spanish style home was built in 1912 and torn down in 2016.  Here is a link to a Citizens' Voice article which tells more about his life and home.
