At the turn of the 20th Century, members of the Universal Postal Union commissioned this monument.
When snail mail was the only mail.
When a letter was passed from hand to hand to hand, around the world.
Instead of pixel to pixel.
(My, how times have changed.)
When a simple package sent from Switzerland to Canada arrived within a handful of weeks.
Instead of...oh, wait.
It still takes more than a handful of weeks to send a snail package from Switzerland to Canada.
(My, how times have not changed.)
