The first words spoken were “wait a minute you ain't heard nothing yet” by Al Jolson

The Bank of Vernal, in Vernal Utah, is the only bank to be built from bricks sent through the post. In 1919 the builders realised it was cheaper to send brick through the U S Postal Service 7 bricks to a parcel than to have them shipped commercially from Salt Lake City.

On the 14th September 1987 the New York Times had 1,612 pages and weighed twelve pounds or 5.4 kilos.
