Photographer's Note

A rusty, old farm truck was in the process of being restored. Parked in an open-sided shed, the morning light revealed sculptural shapes and the rich colours of the rusted paint work. The letters on the aluminium number plate denote the province and town that the vehicle was licensed in ; C= Cape Province J = Paarl.

Leon Serpollet of Paris, France, obtained the first license plate in 1889. In the United States, automobiles were first required to display license plates in the state of New York in 1901. Owners had to provide their names and addresses as well as a description of their vehicles. The fee was one dollar. The plates bore the owner's initials and were required to be over 3 inches (7.5 centimetres) high. Permanent plates made of aluminium were first issued in Connecticut in 1937.
