Show at the right are Harry Green and Glen Hinkle in front of the old Minonk Post Office
at 124 West Fifth Street. Both men had returned from service in World War II and went to work
as Minonk's postal carriers from 1948 until the 1960's. Both men had previously worked
together on the railroad and served in the same division in the army.
The bottom picture shows the two carriers examining a city map with Postmaster Harold Vogel to
plot routes for the new mail service which had its first delivery on July 1, 1948. Two deliveries
were made from Monday through Friday and one on Saturday
