Description : Central to the prompt delivery of the nation's mail is its efficient transit throughout the country. From 1830, the Post Office relied increasingly on the overland rail network to achieve this, with Railway Post Offices, Sunday Sorting Tenders and District Sorting Carriages among the services introduced. More important lines carried the famous 'Night Mail' carriages, rarely seen by the public, other than those seeking out the late-night facility of posting directly into the side of a mail train. All these were supplemented by additional services enabling even rural locations to enjoy a 'next day' service only dreamed of in the age of the mail coach. This book provides a history of the overland carriage of mail by rail, from draughty and poorly lit sorting carriages in 1838 through to the purposeful late-twentieth-century 'Ladies in Red'.

Description : The history of the post office involves many of the most significant themes in the social, economic and political history of Britain. Daunton traces the development of the post office as an institution and as a business in the 19th and 20th centuries and places the debates surrounding its history, performances and failings in a longer historical perspective and in the broader context of British national history.
