CN Express Clerk

"If CN has its way, the last real contact Bradford has with the railway will be gone soon when the train station is either sold or torn down. The railway was an integral part of the community when this photo was taken in 1939. Submitted by Wilbert Mulliss of Bradford, it shows Percy Stephenson, an express clerk at CN who delivered parcels to and from the train station and the post office. Stephenson, who was Mulliss' uncle, posed for this hot on Barrie Street with John Street West in the background. The old Model 'A' truck was owned by CN, and Stephenson worked for CN's agent in town, George Green, an insurance agent and former town clerk."

Picket duty

"When the Canadian Union of Postal Workers national headquarters learned that inside workers at the Bradford Post Office intended to return to work last Wednesday, the union ordered the Barrie local to picket the Bradford building. Five picketers paraded back and forth in front of the building for about three hours Wednesday morning while the Bradford workers set about sorting local mail inside. Barrie CUPW President, Dan Westwood, had hoped to talk the Bradford posties into staying off the job, but arrived an hour after the local workers went back."
