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.)

A good view of Harmon Field - late 1940s

Approaching Bluffton from the southeast, we continue our aerial coverage of the community. From previous photos we've established this series was taken in the late 1940s. Here's a view of the Harmon Field complex.

We'd like to point your attention to the bottom right of the photo. You'll see a side track on the Nickel Plate Railroad that no longer exists. You'll also see what appears to be a handcar on the track.

On the bottom left is the water works quarry, now filled in and known as Steinmetz Field.

It appears that a physical education class is taking palce in the Harmon Field practice area. Notice a ball diamond on the creek side of the football field.

We welcome additional observations from viewers.
