License Plates as Keepers of State Identity: Exploring Abe
"Land of Lincoln" standard Illinois license plate on car parked in Grant Park garage. Here Abe makes an appearance smack dab in the middle of the plate. He seems a bit stern or vacant, like he isn't at all prepared to have an opinion on cars. The Previous Exploring Abe series thread here.
Update: Found this site with a photo history of Illinois' license plates. Lincoln's face is a new addition, but the slogan goes back to 1955.
