I delivered papers for 2 large city papers 40 yrs ago using my bike
and newsboys bag. I remember rolling them with rubber bands then
riding the route while pitching the paper as close to the front door I could
manage. Some customers wanted the paper inside to screen door but not
many. My route was so large it took me 2 1/2 hrs every morning to roll
and deliver them before school.
Interestingly the bike I used was a English made Raleigh 3 speed. That
bike was bombproof as no matter how much weight I hung on it with papers
it never broke or quit.
