SUMMARY The subject is the delivery of the U.S. mail in a rural area. The camera was positioned in full sight of a standard rural free delivery post box located in front of a well-kept house and garden. A small boy and girl walk past the camera position in front of the mail box. At that moment, a standard rural horse-drawn postal delivery wagon comes into sight. The postman places the mail in the box, and the wagon continues on its way. NOTES Copyright: American Mutoscope & Biograph Company; 22Aug03; H34981. Cameraman, A. E. Weed.
