in the Personalized plate page, the
MVB informed motorists in 1954 that plate No. 1 would no
longer be released due to the perceived squabbling that
would occur amonst motorists vying to obtain plate No. 1
for their cars. Plate No. 1 continued to be manufactured
after 1954 with one plate from the set being hung in the
Victoria Motor Vehicle Branch (it is these plates that eventually
made their way into the hands of collectors many years ago).
While the second half of the set was purporetdly stored
in the Provincial Legislative Buildings. It is these Legislative
plates that are pictured below.
