Poetic License

The Icon spotted "CHEER 63" in the Ada school parking lot in September. Look for it in a white Chevy Traverse LTE. Does it belong for a former cheerleader born in 1963? That's our best guess.

Do you have an interesting license plate? Send a photo to info@blufftonicon.com. Don't forget to tell us the plate's meaning.

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.
