The present owner, Dick 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. Part of the fleet is shown above and the furniture van wfih 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. Post has excellent facilities for crating and shipping household goods and is rated tops in the field. These special packing facilities include equipment for moving pianos, refrigerators and lots more of the bulkier and hard-to-handle items. A daily run from Algona to Mason City keeps a steady pace for Post . . . and gives Algona a fast, direct connection for most freight shipments. And there's also a Quonset type storage building which is full all the time, plus a storage buijding at the Post 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, too, has developed into a profitable sideline. Not only does Dick raise these birds, but he sells them, too. Posf s Parakeets are known all over the country and there isn't hardly a day 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." „_•.
