-Junior Editors Quiz on- MAIL QUESTION: Whan were the first mail boxes used? ANSWER: The earliest public mail systems were erratic and costly. The person who wanted to mail a letter had to bring it to a post office, pay his money and then hope that the letter would arrive at Its destination in a matter of weeks or months. The first postage stamps, issued by Great Britain in 1840, revolutionized the postal system. A person could attach a gummed stamp to his letter, take it to the post office and drop it in a box. Better transportation also made the mail service faster. The first street mail boxes, which appeared in 1858, completed the postal revolution. Now all the sender of a letter needed to do was affix his stamp and drop it in a .mail box near his homo. A postal worker would empty the box at regular intervals and take the letters to the post office. FOR YOU TO DO: See if you can find out what happens to a letter from the time you drop it into a mail box until it reaches the person to whom it is addressed. Perhaps your school can arrange a tour of your local post office.
