CHP edits Le courrier prend les airs. L’aviation postale intérieure en France (Mail in the air. Postal aircraft in France) by Camille Henri, no 15 of the Cahiers pour l’histoire de La Poste, November 2012.
The book deals with the plane, as a new tool of transportation, in the creation of a hexagonal network of mail carrying.
From 1962, La Poste is helping Santa Claus answering to the children who are indicating their address. The huge human chain, which is beginning by the work of the Santa Claus secretaries and finishing with the mailmen delivery, is leading to the right time and right place delivery of the cards. In the context of the 50th anniversary, CHP is proposing on line an exposition of the 15 emblematic cards, which are witnesses of their time, of the Santa Claus representation, but also of a changing La Poste.
