Film shows rural postal delivery in 1903
Here's film that I came across in the Library of Congress' archives. It was shot on August 8th, 1903 in rural Washington, DC.
The film shows the delivery of US mail by a 2-horse vehicle. The postal employee gets out of the wagon and places mail in a standard metal mail box. A woman comes out of her house and removes the mail from the mail box, then buys stamps from the mail carrier as the picture ends.
