Description
"the grumman long life vehicle (LLV) has been carrying mail through snow, rain, heat, and gloom since 1987. they're loud and hot, but you can cram a lot of mail into them. amazon packages, paychecks, medications — all this and more comes in these trucks, daily. even during a pandemic, and even during political pressure. i've wanted to take a picture of these social distancing notices for a few weeks now, and only today got my chance. i feel like there's more we should do for these essential, front-line workers who have kept our communities running through these ups and downs than tape a note to their LLVs. cutting budgets and slowing service certainly ain't it."
