Things That Carried the Mail

Things That Carried the Mail

Containers of various materials, shapes and sizes have been used over the centuries to keep pieces of mail flying away. Among the museum's collections are odd containers created for quite ordinary services, as well as odd looking containers for some very unusual mail services.
