Roy Molebash was a mail carrier in the 1930s whose route took him north of Bremen to deliver to Madison township residents with Bremen addresses. He seems to have had a sense of humor about the more difficult parts of his job: the roads.
Country roads in the 1930s could deteriorate into a muddy bog when the whether turned wet. And it appears that he decided to document his troubles.
His album of country roads and even US 6 while it was under construction has been preserved by his family, who were generous enough to let us scan it.
