Philip B. Downing, patented his new device on October 27, 1891 (US Patent # 462,096). I can't imagine how lines were at post offices with everyone competing to send their business as well as private mail, packages or bills. Nor even having to traverse the often unpaved streets on day's with severely aberrant weather! Especially out in the remote areas of the countryside. In those days, there were no cell-phones, no email, no computers to pay bills instantaneously, or even Mailboxes. Yes Philip, our great African-American Inventor had patented his "street letter drop mailbox with a hinged door that closed" to protect the citizens mail. The first functional mailbox.
Thank G-d for the early "heroes of human science and health care", and all those that in some way progressed science, the learning of others, improved our health, welfare and our entire way of life. Our great American Investor Philip B. Downing, interesting person in time. little guy 7/19/12
