Across The Miles
Richard De Wolfe
Painting - Alkyd On Canvas
Imagine a time before FedEx and jet airplanes. Life was a lot slower then, and for many people living in rural areas, the most exciting event of the day was a visit by the mailman. A card, a letter or a parcel from some far away friend or relative was something to cherish and look forward to. Expectations must have soared at Christmas time each year!
Getting the mail to all of these people was especially difficult in winter. Mail delivery wagons would have to be refitted with sleighs in place of wheels in order to travel the snow-covered roads. The mailman would sit in an open and unheated seat all day long making sure that the mail got through to those who waited to see him come. Merry Christmas!
