This photo was sent by a reader, which came from her grandmother's possessions.
The postcard is dated 9/28/1913 and the back says that the rural carrier is strapping his mail sack prior to delivery using an Eagle motorcycle.
Many of our rural routes are a hundred miles or more. Can you imagine delivering them on motorcycle? I delivered on a horse, and let me tell you, after a few miles, it's no fun.
What do you think?
