USPS in 200 Years

Here’s another great demonstration of technology’s awesome use in scholarly work. A graduate student put together a video of the growth of U.S. Postal Offices from 1700 to 1900, and it’s pretty interesting to watch.

I’ve always loved maps, and it’s neat to watch spots start expanding faster and faster as we reach into the 1800s and then watch the West Coast grow whole splotches during the middle of that century. I hope to see more things like this as more talented academics put history and technology together.
