Throwback Thursday, the price of postage
We are starting a new weekly blog, Throwback Thursday.
Did you know that postage for a 1 ounce letter in 1883 was 4 cents. It sure has changed a lot since then however. 100 years later it was 22 cents. While the cost of mailing rose only 18 cents in the 100 years between 1883 – 1983, it has risen steadily since. In 1995 it was 32 cents and remains at 49 cents today.
