Advent Calendar: 20 December – Christmas Post

Photographs of postman Andrew Kirk delivering Christmas parcels and of the Christmas rush at the post office depot in St Andrews, December 1936 (GMC-EA-324 and GMC-EA-331-A).

These photographs were taken by George Cowie, a local press photographer from 1930 to 1982. His work covers all aspects of life in and around St Andrews and the East Neuk of Fife.

  1. Heh, heh … I love the photo of Andrew with bike, parcels, and cows; no spring chicken, Andrew. The lower photo seems to indicate there were few, if any, female postal workers in St Andrews in those days. Many thanks for these wonderful postings!
