Inspired by the heroic homing pigeons of history, this unique mail holder serves as a daily reminder of their great bravery. Before the advent of modern postal mail and now email, pigeon post was introduced after keen observers noted pigeons innate ability to find their way back to their nests from great distances. Homing pigeons became an essential aspect of politics, diplomacy, and even military action for over 3,000 years. These noble post birds carried messages through dangerous enemy territory and saved the lives of countless men! Their use was discontinued after World War II, but the tradition and respect for their legacy continues.
