A Post About Post

DSC_0271

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.)
