In: from the United Kingdom

"Postman with a pony and trap in Northern Ireland, 1938, Photographer unknown", the text on the back side of this card says. The card was issued by the British Postal Museum & Archive.
Also on the back, these stamps, among them one showing the former politician, once youngest Prime Minister in the UK, William Pitt the Younger (1759-1806).

Thank you very much, John!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. I think that really sums up rural postal services in days gone by.

  2. So do I.
    I love this picture (again Thank you very much!), and am wondering who will have traveled the longest distance to meet on the hill top to /receive the mail: the postman or the cyclist :-)
