052887 - The Icon first thought this was a a zip code, but upon further study, we believe the owner of this plate was born on May  28, 2987. We welcome clarification from any Icon view with more information. We spotted this plate on a blue Honda CR-V in Ada. (The monthly renewal sticker confirmed our birthday theory.)

March 1905: Mayor Greer said Ada needed a marshal; we had a deputy but needed a primary officer and he nominated Alonzo Cummans.

May 1923:  the first advertisement for the Public Service Filling Station, located on East Buckeye Street, appeared in the newspaper. Earl S. Wolfrom was the local manager.
