The second license plate prefix to be issued in British Columbia was the short-lived "T" for Trucks, which was used only for the 1924 registration year (the first prefix being the "D" for Dealer plates in 1911).  It is not clear what fate befell these early "T" plates, but they form an interesting precursor to the eventual classification of Commercial Trucks in subsequent decades.
