Plate of the Week: 1940 Sample

I've only got five photos of these in the archive; I'm not sure how many survived the metal recycling efforts of World War II.

From the collection of Pete Madsen. Thanks, Pete!

Fred Meyer kid cart with plate on the back

I get a kick out of seeing pseudo-plates on everyday artifacts.

A little hard to make out in this dark photo, but you get the idea.

I tried to fit into the cart and have somebody take my picture, but security had to carry me away. :-)
