Post Office

Does anyone remember postal bonds? We bought them at school in the 60s. Each week we would bring a nickel or a dime to school, which would get us a sticker, which we would then lick and put in a little booklet. When the book got filled up with stickers, we would trade it in for a $5.00 Post Office bond. I doubt if something like that would work today, but maybe someone should do the math to see how much money little kids would have to chip in to save the Post Office.

Love the color in the photo.

You know -- I think small change can still yield big results.

Looks old-timey. I don't remember postal bonds.
