Description:

Owney received this identification token from Orville S. Cullar, a Railway Mail Service (RMS) clerk. Cullar, born in Indiana, worked on the mail trains between New York, New York and Chicago, Illinois. While not riding the trains, Cullar lived at 1129 S. Lafayette in South Bend, Indiana.
