The 1917 Gloucester City Directory indicates the hours the Post Office is open: 6:45 AM to 8 PM (!!!!) AND on Sundays 2-4 PM. No wonder there were so many clerks and carriers.
Also, 5 mail pick ups per day!
These appear to be mailboxes perhaps from those years, still in use today.
Those were the days, we might sigh to ourselves. However, upon reflection, I begin to consider that technology has allowed 24/7 online access to a number of mail or shipping options. Technology has also allowed for text messages and emails to overtake physical letters, notices, bills etc. in speed and convenience. What a difference this past century has made!!
