dc.description It's not clear that the Enquirer and News published these photos, although a humorous story on June 3, 1981, by Assistant City Editor Dick Lovell offers a clue for why they were taken. The story recounts how a line of post office patrons, frustrated by slow service, staged a mini-protest by shouting "we want service" in unison, which apparently succeeded in bringing more clerks to the counter. The story then documents the lack of postal substations in Battle Creek. en_US
