Pres Bragg's Retirement Party

From Bonnie (Brown) Neal
Presley (Pres) Bragg was for many years the mail carrier for one of the two Orlando RFD routes. My dad, Solomon Brown, was a substitute carrier for him.
Here is the picture taken at Pres Bragg's retirement dinner. Note the mailbox-shaped cake in front of him. These were the Orlando mail carriers and all of them are deceased except my Dad. I teased my Dad and told him that he was the only one without a suit and tie, that he was the only one living.
Back Row: Pete Henline, Pete Bennett, Jack Riffle, Solomon Brown, Claud Mick
Front Row: Charley Tully, Presley Bragg, Alva Barnett
