"Our rural delivery vehicles func tion as post offices-on-wheels," ex plained Brown. "As rural customers catch 'spring fever,' we'll be there to serve them." Rural carrier services include stamp and money order sales, parcel pickup and acceptance of registered and express mail. Business trans actions are completed on-the-spot at delivery stops along each route. "These 'open-air post offices' are a world apart from their city coun terparts," said Brown, "yet they bring a wide range of postal services right to ybur door." "Rural delivery developed a personal touch in its early days, she said, "bringing families food, news papers, tobacco, dry goods and items that were otherwise difficult to get. "Today, for some older residents who live in secluded areas, rural carriers serve as a lifeline to the outside world, bringing food to shut-ins during emergencies or alerting the telephone company when a storm interrupts service."
