Lost Jobs - Letter Writers

Imagine that, they actually wrote to customers by hand. Look how big that room is, filled with employees busily writing letter,  somewhere in Chicago the headquarters of Sears Roebuck & Co.

Most communication nowadays is done electronically via email. If you should receive a letter from a business it isn't even signed. It's simply printed and spit out into an envelope postage is calculated and stamped, and it's sorted into zipcodes before its touched by human hands.
