Do you want to know the history of the first postage stamp in the world? Humans have used many methods of communication throughout the centuries. We’ve gone from inscribing rock walls and clay tablets to using ink on papyrus. Ink on paper followed and then typing, laser printing, etc. More often than not, messages are now sent by text or email.
In the past, it was often difficult to send messages because there was no reliable system in place. Letters often took forever to reach their destination. Or, they arrived too late-if they arrived at all! Imagine only finding out that a loved one had died many months or years after the fact!
