Notice how simple the owners address is.

Mt. Hamilton Road is still pretty much as it was in 1924. It connects east San Jose with The Lick Observatory atop Mt. Hamilton. Today there is some development at the bottom (the east San Jose end), but mostly it's a windy narrow 2 lane road with a zillion switchbacks. In 1924 the persons name and the name of the road were all that would be needed.

In the 1920's and 1930's my grandparents were friends with a caretaker at the observatory. My dad still remembers the drives up that road to visit when he was a kid. I'd bet they probably knew William F. Corder.

Old registrations can be fun.
Here is what I have -
It is a bit tattered and you can see that Mass charged significantly more than California.

Almost forgot - The vehicle that goes with this piece of paper is in my garage! :-)

That's pretty cool. I love driving up Mt Hamilton Rd to Lick Observatory and beyond. I just took the speedster up there two weeks ago. It is great drive.

I found Mr. Corder's application for a marriage license online. This is from the 1/19/10 issue of the San Francisco Call.
