The Post That Was


I like email for all the reasons most folks do: speed and ease.  But when it comes to solid connections, I am a devoted letter writer.  I so enjoy images of postal people and activity of times past.  It reminds me that the fourth dimension of TIME goes in both directions - forward and back.  I see old letters and old images and I feel a connection with all the people who lived before.

The British Postal Museum and Archives has its own Flickr account.  Here are some images I especially like.  You can find the home page for the account here.
