Buying Stamps from Rural Wagon, U.S.P.O. (film #25 on America at Work, America at Leisure. Also in the Historical section of Open Video Project). [Category: Early Film & TV]

Uh, this doesn’t look like a person buying stamps from a rural wagon. This looks like a mailman delivering mail to a woman living in a brownstone apartment house in someplace like Brooklyn.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: **.
