Distribution Case

John T. Jackson's Distribution Case

John T. Jackson's distribution case
This distribution case belonged to John T. Jackson who served as postmaster of Alanthus, Virginia, for 48 years.

At local post offices around the country, distribution cases like this were a familiar sight for decades. Standing behind a case like this, a postal worker sent each piece of mail along a different path—to a postal carrier, post office box, general delivery, or others.
