Street mail car, U.S. Post Office

SUMMARY The first scene appears to have been taken on a main thoroughfare of large city. In the immediate foreground is a horse-drawn U.S. mail vehicle waiting at the side of a streetcar track. Soon a streetcar approaches the camera position. It stops beside the mail vehicle and the driver unloads mail sacks from the streetcar. He then puts some sacks from his wagon onto the streetcar. As the film ends, both the streetcar and the horse-drawn mail delivery wagon leave the scene. NOTES Copyright: American Mutoscope & Biograph Company; 22Aug03; H34992. Cameraman, A. E. Weed.
