In 1906, when merchant Ore Bercaw came to town and was named postmaster, the name of Saugus post office was changed to Surrey. The reasons are lost to time,
but the name stuck until 1915 when the name reverted to Saugus.
Real photo postcard of a local mountain view, canceled March 2?, 1912, at Surrey. The post office was located inside Bercaw's
store, on the west side of Highway 4 (Bouquet Canyon Road), roughly across the street from the Southern Pacific Saugus Depot.
The post card is addressed to Mrs. P. McAnany, Los Angeles - West Glendale R.F.D. No. 5, California, and reads:
"Dear McAnany / When are you folks coming out the roads are good now / How is Phillis. Grace is in town stopping with the 'Dears' for a few days / Maybe
Mr Gray and myself will in Easter Sunday. Best wishes to Mom / Mrs. John Gray."
