I trust they have been fully trained in the correct methods of lifting parcels.
Les Auld: Only up to a certain weight Bill, thanks for the comment.

I expect after 50 unwrappings the winner gets a smartie.
Les Auld: And if he is lucky it is a Blue one, thanks for the comment Chad.
I'm quite envious of this series Les, so much more interesting than a session in a studio with models.
Les Auld: I'm looking forward to the next one Brian, thanks for the comment.
Applause!!!! I can't get enough of this series, the clarity and colours are just stunning, let alone the light!!! Master pieces, all of them. And you simply HAVE to exhibit them!!!!
Les Auld: Thanks Marion, appreciate the compliment, not sure about exhibiting but certainly a few competition entries amongst them.
Wonderful work Les..This takes me back a bit.
Les Auld: And me Ron, thanks for the comment.
Reminds me of doing the Christmas post in the sixties and loading and unloading trains at Watford Junction. Excellent shot again.
Les Auld: I did the Christmas post but worked in the sorting office during the late sixties, thanks for the comment John.
Hi Les,nice shot,but! Back in the day they wouldn't have treated those parcels with that much respect! I know, i was there! I do like all your steam shots, very nostalgic.
Les Auld: I can also vouch for that Frank, from observation only though. Thanks for the comment.
