One and the Same

Postal Families

Most post offices were the same. It was the size of the office that generated the differences. For the most part you could walk into 20,000 different post offices and they’d have the same box section where the patrons would come get their mail. They’d have the same places for the letter carrier to deliver, the same place for the distribution clerks to distribute it. Many, many similarities. We could sit down as a group and start talking and already know a bunch of what was going on and I could say ‘go to the pouch rack and they’d know what that means and ‘go to the opening’ and they would know what that meant. So it bonded us and that was good.
