Hello Readers and Welcome to new Followers! I've gotten a little bit of mail in so far this week--all very good pieces at that--and not only did I send out a second batch of Holiday cards but I've also lined up a few swaps to get together and pen pals waiting on replies! The weather today didn't really permit running to the PO Box or taking any good pictures (insert dark and gloomy winter forecast here), so I decided I would do a fun post! Let me know what you think!
- In 1923, one postmaster estimated that 2 percent of parcels delivered by his carriers consisted of laundry. College students, especially, found it economical to mail dirty clothes home and have them mailed back clean. The typical “laundry bag” was a canvas-covered cardboard box 4½ by 12 by 20 inches, weighing six to seven pounds.
