Old Post Office Christmas rush

Dec. 21, 1953 Southeast Missourian

Packages at the Cape Girardeau post office are piled high and filled so much space they left only small aisles for clerks to work. This view, made early today, shows Paul Hanf, Bob Taylor, Layton Keller and Calvin Vogelsang, clerks, wrestling with the deluging Christmas rush. (G.D. Fronabarger/Southeast Missourian archive)
