Postage Stamp Background Information:
The first “Postal Service”, Royal Mail of Great Britain was established 501 years ago in 1516 and was the predecessor to the United States Postal Service (USPS), which serves 326,473,013 United States citizens living all over our country.
On May 1st 1840, Great Britain issued the first “Postal Stamp” which was affectionately called the “Penny Black” depicting Queen Victoria and valued at one penny, which was of course quite a price to pay to write a letter.
The United States of America followed suit but only after seven long years, why the delay and what took so long to implement such a valuable and ingenious idea we will never know.
The long delay was likely due to the animosity that reigned high between Great Britain and the United States of America after the latter had declared Independence and the war that followed.
The idea for the postage stamp came from Sir Rowland Hill and what an idea it was, completely revolutionizing the postage system around the world..
After the advent of the postal stamp letter writing in the United States of America became a very popular hobby and a past time among all ages, and the USPS was inundated with letters forcing them to streamline their services.
Today hundreds of thousands of men and women work actively for the USPS which boasts the largest fleet vehicles of any civilian department of the world. It performs a herculean task daily by delivering mail to every nook and corner of the country whilst also facilitating mail to be delivered in and out of the country.
The USPS has become extremely streamlined bringing their service right to our doorsteps, to the point where letters no arriving has become so uncommon that we don't often even think about the possibility of it.
