THE POST OFFICE
The General Post Office and local post offices have many duties. They not only deliver letters, telegrams, newspapers and magazines, but, among other things, they pay out old age pensions, “subscribe to periodicals and take and deliver parcels. Inside the post office is a long counter divided into departments for parcels, stamps, registered and air-mail letters, telegrams, money-order, etc.
There is a post-box in all post offices, or you can drop your letters and postcards into one of the familiar red and blue post-boxes attached to some houses in the street.
There are several collections a day and your letter will soon reach the addressee.
Do you want to send a telegram? Just ask for a telegram form at the post office counter or take one fr om the box in the small compartments provided for the writing of telegrams and fill it in.
Perhaps you want to buy a stamp or a stamped envelope to send a letter, then you go to the counter wh ere they sell postcards, envelopes, blocks of stamps and stamps of different denominations, or get them from the slot machine.
