052887 - The Icon first thought this was a a zip code, but upon further study, we believe the owner of this plate was born on May  28, 2987. We welcome clarification from any Icon view with more information. We spotted this plate on a blue Honda CR-V in Ada. (The monthly renewal sticker confirmed our birthday theory.)

Bluffton oil tank fire

CLICK ON IMAGE ON ENLARGE

Here's perhaps the most frightening Bluffton post card of all time. The identification line on the right reads: The burning oil tanks Bluffton Ohio (publishinged by Sidney Hauenstein).

Sorry to say, we know nothing about this fire. The message side of the card does not clearly show the postmarked year. The message has nothing to do with the fire. It reads: Have forwarded box of fresh prunes from Santa Rosa, Ca. for yourself from Gwendolyn Lenore and Mary (?).

Sincerely,

Zoe [Hauenstein]

The card was maked to Mrs. F.A. Easly, Danville, Ohio (Knox County).

The post card was produced by Thomas & Company, Findlay, Ohio, and was postmarked from Lima.
