Dash Between: Damon Hill, 82, delivered mail in Oberlin during a bygone era

Damon Hill, Oberlin postman
Damon Hill began delivering mail on foot in Oberlin, Ohio, in the mid-1950s, when the price of a postage stamp was 3 cents and zip codes did not exist.

He took a disability retirement in 1983, shortly before 5-digits-plus-4 zips were introduced.
