More of a question. On opening day, Oct. 22, 1977, there was a temporary USPO set up at one end of the bridge. They had special envelopes and a unique cancellation mark to celebrate the occasion. I have one such envelope where my parents mailed a letter to me from that USPO. I am curious to know if anyone has a record of how many pieces of mail were processed that day from the bridge?
