Those were the days, my friend.

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.Mail hours Gloucester City Directory 19170001

Also,  5 mail pick ups per day!

Mail deliveries Gloucester City Directory 19170001

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!!
