Photograph of rural carrier and sleigh

Description:

Rural Free Delivery letter carrier peers out of his horse-drawn sleigh while making his daily rounds. Rural carriers in cold winter climates often kept sleighs for winter use, in addition to their mail wagons. Such expenses were sometimes a hardship for rural carriers, who were (and still are) responsible for purchasing their own vehicles.
