Default Re: Model A Ford Mail Truck

I talked with the Postmaster in Gloucester, Massachusetts when I bought their only Model A mail truck three years after it was retired. He told me it had three basic functions and the first of the three was delivering mail to the relay boxes for foot carriers to replenish their delivery sacks. Second was delivery of parcel post packages. Third was delivery of Special Delivery mail which in the 1930's and 1940's was quite common.
