Time to register your automobile: new law takes effect in 1920


Thursday, Dec. 25, 1919

from the Gloucester Gazette

To Whom This May Concern: The new Automobile Law of Virginia requires owners of Cars to register their titles with the Sec’ty of the Commonwealth by Jan. 8th, 1920. Failing to do so subjects owners of a fine not exceeding $500, and confinement in Jail for not less than six months, or both.

Inasmuch as License for cars cannot be obtained this coming year until titles to same shall have been registered, owners of Machines should attend to registering their titles at once. 

I am prepared to take acknowledgments to applications at any time or you may find me. Bring with you the No. of your Machine as well as the date purchased and I can fix you up: Yours in Service, F. Herbert Stokes, Notary Public, Hayes Store, Va.
