Weird & Wacky Wednesday
Here is a weird and wacky fact Joey found for you!
Did you know that in 1913 it was legal for someone to mail their children through the mail? I never knew this either! It was a rare occurrence but all they did was just attached stamps to their children's clothing. The children then rode on trains to where they were going and they were accompanied by mail carriers.
Information was found in a newspaper and it reported that it cost just 53 cents for parents to mail their daughter to her grandparents for a visit. As people read the news stories and photographs were being seen around the country, it did not take long to get a law passed making it illegal to send children through the mail. Things sure have changed!
