One of the earliest examples of postal worker camaraderie after hours is the creation of letter carriers’ bands through the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC). The NALC was organized in 1889 and letter carriers’ bands arrived soon after.

This Post office band uniform was worn by Adolph Morgen in the St. Paul, Minnesota, Letter Carriers Band.
