The present owner, Dkk Post, has grown up in the business but has several years to go to equal the 50-year mark. His father, Hugh, started the company in the early 1900s when only a team of horses and a wagon; today, there is a fleet of three moving vans, a straight truck and a pickup. Parf Of the fleet is shown above and the furniture van wtih Dick is pictured below. The furniture van is/used exclusively for shipment of household goods and is equipped for expert handling and moving of all pieces.

And there's also a Quonset type storage building which is full all the time, plus a storage building at the Past headquarters on the corner of East College and South Thorington streets. : • " , ; While Dick's .trucks keep him tied up most of the time, he has found'time to enjoy an unusual hobby ... raising-Parakeets- And this hobby, top, has .developed into a profitable sideline. Not only does Dick raise these birds, but he sells them, too. Posfs Parakeets are known all over the country and there i*n 4 t hardly -a tjfty goes by but what some one stops to either buy a bird or talk about them. The birds have a nice big cage in which to fly and chirp, and there are lots of companions, probably around 50 most of the time. Dick's hobby has given him the title of "The Algona Birdman."
