One tradition repeated in 1948 was the annual run to get new plates for vehicles. Before the days of staggered licensing, stickers on plates and mail in orders, motorists who owned vehicles had to get new plates each year and generally do it in person. This led to a large lines and a lot of rusted on bolts that needed extraction on vehicles to replace plates. Here Elizabeth Bonnacci is helped out in sorting license plates by a very nice Navy recruiter (T. Morris) who resided in the office next to the state tax commission at Price City Hall. Office manager Silas Rowley also helped take the count and get the plates in order before the rush.
