The year is 1914. Rural mail delivery by horse a buggy. This was how the mail was delivered in much of America 100 years ago. The original image was shot by prominent Washington, DC photographers, George Harris and Martha Ewing. The likelihood is this photo was taken in rural Virginia or Maryland.

Here is a dedicated mail carrier who lives up to the unofficial motto of the U.S. Post Office: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”.
