Rate this:

The rural post office in Canada was once a vibrant institution of sociability and communication. The mail brought books, magazines, newspapers, letters, sometimes money, and parcels. The small-town economy was aided by postal saving banks, the money order, and the mail-order catalog. Country Post recreates the postal world before the era of telephones and television through photographs and interviews with postmasters from all regions of Canada.
