Post Office Delivers Calendar 63 Years Late

A new year, and a new calendar goes up on the wall. My selection for 2013? An It’s Always Sunny calendar. However one person had their new calendar delivered 63 years later. 

James Flanagan didn’t even live long enough to see his 1950 calendar delivered to The Scranton Times, where he was employed as general manager. He passed away in December 1949, which was the date on a letter attached to the calendar.

The calendar, which was sent out by the Pennsylvania Railroad, arrived unceremoniously at the newspaper with no explanation for the extended delay.

There is talk of maybe placing the calendar in a Railroad Museum. For now the U.S. Postal Service says the letter may have been recently found during building renovations or in old machines.
