All Aboard the Mail Trolley

Mail TrolleyI’ve seen photos of postal vans, wagons and carts; mail coaches, mail trains and one or two mail planes; letter carrier bicycles and wheeled pouches; and even mail boats — but this is the first time that I’ve seen a United States Mail Trolley.

Maybe we need to revise the trolley song from Meet Me in St. Louis: “Clang, clang, clang went the mailman…”

Harvard Square, Cambridge, circa 1900.
