Yes—among his other feats—Ben Franklin was the First Postmaster for the 13 Colonies, AND the First Postmaster General for the United States he helped birth.
(Ben’s holding the Samsonite “Slim-Line” brief case—used to bring everything needed to write and send a letter or postcard at Publetters) • L👀K for that case on Tuesday (1/22) at @thepostPHL , a brand-new pub tucked into the ground floor of CIRA SOUTH, 129 S. 30th St. We’ll be tucked into a corner of The PostPHL from 7pm to 9-ish. Find us, and we’ll set you up; then Just Add Words. FREE? But of Course!
