Original 1914 California Porcelain License Plate Connected to Wood Mount
Original 1914 California Porcelain License Plate. Plate is still connected to a wooden mount. We are not sure if this is an original connection. Beginning in 1914, state legislators opted to issue standardized license plates directly from Sacramento instead of requiring motorists to obtain them independently. Although the first California license plates were manufactured in Pennsylvania in 1914 and 1915, public outcry compelled Sacramento to have them made by an in-state firm for subsequent years.
