I thought this was quirky and cute…then I read the caption. For real?! . Via weirdvintage: Sending a child through the post, 1900 “After parcel post service was introduced, at least two children were sent by the service. With stamps attached to their clothing, the children rode with railway and city carriers to their destination. The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples.” - Smithsonian
Life goes on in London, 1941. London blitz. My mother and her family lived through the Blitz as London's East End was bombed into non-existence. They lost their home and almost everything they owned, but life did go on. The British truly stood shoulder to shoulder, helping each other to survive with courage and a "stiff upper lip".
