‘The Country Letter Carrier’ Painting (1859)

This oil on canvas by J P Hall depicts a letter carrier in a long red coat, short red breeches, long white stockings, black waistcoat and top hat. He is waving a letter in the air, which two girls are trying to reach. In his other hand he holds a straight posthorn and supports an umbrella.
