    Just had to post these. My Grandfather worked at the jail house in Columbia, South Carolina as a jailer. There is also a tag on the jail keys from Ford that says "Watch the Fords go by". My Mom talked about going there all the time as a child and the jailers buying her drinks and crackers. Also there is a picture of his South Carolina drivers license from 1953.

      Yeah, those two little metal keychains were drivers licenses. Pretty darn cool!

      Must've been really easy to make a fake driver's license lol
