Pushing the Envelope, A History of the Post Office through Stamps

Using images of vintage stampsHenry Lukas, education director at the Spellman Museum of Stamps, explains how the U.S. mail has been carried since Colonial times. We know the Pony Express - but rockets, dog sleds, camels, mules? Henry will also talk about postal strikes, Parcel Post, special stamps, and the impact of email on the Post Office’s financial situation.
