This city letter carrier posed for a humorous photograph with a young boy in his mailbag. After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, 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

I wonder if any parents dropped their kids off at the post office without the stamp attached to their clothing. Hell, what a deal that would be! With no postage, they're just going to return the kid back home in a few days. The mom takes a break for a few days. It's a win-win situation. LOL
