Deco Letter box - imagine the correspondence this letterbox has seen.

This is a pretty cool picture from 1912. It shows a Mail Man on a little motorized card. The cart looks to perhaps be a 3 wheel type device. At first I thought he was delivering mail, but upon closer inspection it looks like the cart is designed to receive mail from mail boxes. It looks like their is a chute, and the mail from the mailbox dumps down into the cart.
