Die Post in Bildern 1 (The Post in Pictures 1)

This is a folder with an introduction page and 12 prints by artist Gustave Müller, Dresden, 1890-91

The prints were made for distribution to schools, to give the children the feel of the romance of the early days of the Post - the postilion with his smart uniform, riding from town to town, smoking his pipe, quaffing beer and engaging the postmasters and mailmen with tales of his exploits.

Those who have read Terry Pratchett's book Going Postal will relate.
