Wild Letters

Not sure if the envelope above, sent by Rosemary (Canada) has been actually delivered by pigeon or by owl.

The letter below, sent by Catherine (France)... By dog!


  1. By dog or owl, not surprising! In 1860, the US initiated the Pony Express which sent letters via fast horses from Missouri to California in ten days. It only survived a year until the introduction of telegraph service in 1861! Today it takes about five days to send a letter the same distance via the postal service. Not much improvement but the horses are happier!

    1. It's crazy that times of delivering letters are nowadays the same, or even longer, than a century ago!


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
