Actually, this first Branford, CT mail delivery vehicle is now retired.  Burt Shepard carried the mail in this horse-drawn wagon, made by Studebaker, from 1902 to 1923.  He then used a truck to deliver the mail until he retired in 1933.  His grandchildren donated the Studebaker to the Branford Historical Society.

After a wonderful potluck dinner, we celebrate with a bang and the fireworks over East Rock…

  1. Those goats seem to have a great playpen. Can they really climb to the upper as well as the lower levels? The 4th is over and now on to the 5th and 6th etc.
