The history of Mailing services Part 2
The British colonies in America had a rather well-established postal system that had built up from the 17th century onwards. Benjamin Franklin, who would later become one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, was a colonial post-master general for Pennsylvania and beyond. George Washington also maintained extensive written correspondences with his peers throughout the colonies, and later within the newly independent United States.
The Inca Empire, before its conquest by the Spanish conquistadors, also had an extensive road system throughout its empire, with a relay system of dedicated runners. This was used to both maintain control over its subjects, and also to relay messages and goods. The Emperor in Cuzco was able to enjoy a fish freshly caught from the coast within only a couple of days. So well-laid was this road system, that the Spanish continued to make extensive use of it long after the Incans’ fall.
As the 19th century wore on, mail services grew more sophisticated. The invention of steam engines quickly replaced the older Pony Express-style couriers and mail stagecoaches. Telegraph technologies also allowed for more instantaneous communications between continents and communities. The Red Line of the British Empire connected London to its territories in Egypt and India, and across the Atlantic to Canada, far more closely than ever before possible. Finally airpower in the 20th century resulted in airmail -- now a package could be delivered within hours rather than days or months.
The internet has further expanded on mail services. Now contact is easier and faster than ever, immediately connecting two people thousands of miles away as though they were in the same room. Shopping online and international shipping has meant the postal service has become more effective than ever, and has resulted in ever further developments in international shipping.
