    I miss the old downtown post office. I started there in 1963 as a Christmas casual and again in 1964 as a Christmas casual. I started my permenant career there in Nov 1965 and am still working as a clerk, now at the Midway Annex. we moved to twinco up on Ruffin Rd and Clairmont Mesa Blvd when there was nothing much out there but a stable next door and snakes etc in the parking lot, then we moved to Midway P&DC.

    Before his promotion to Station Manager, my father Terence B McArron, was in charge of the stamp stock for all of San Diego county and worked here at the main office back in the 1960s. I followed in his foot steps and served in the US Postal Service for 33 years.
