Smyrna Mail Crane

Courtesy of John Ball.

A Mrs. Young stands on the platform to place the mailbag onto it at Smyrna in 1918. Placing the mail this way allowed it to be picked up by the train without stopping. A bag would be thrown off the train in return. For a period of time, mail for Smyrna and points around it was dispatched daily except Sunday and holidays.
