Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651 By John Bolton
I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.
Note: I am working on a collection of short and very short stories that all tie together in a fictional place called Goodland County Oklahoma. Some are music related and some feature CBGs. I appreciate your comments, good, bad and corrective.
