The Postman

Top of page

This film presents a thorough look at how the post office works. What is the Dead Letter Office? Who cancels the stamps? How does a letter get from Ottawa to Landis, Saskatchewan? From the letter carrier to the sorter, all the postal workers are shown to contribute in getting a letter to its final destination. A short trailer Jimmy Addresses a Letter accompanies this film to demonstrate the correct way of writing an address.
