Goodbye, Scotsman

I don't remember when I first started reading The Scotsman, it was always just there. Every day, around midday, the newspaper would arrive. The paper was folded twice, lengthways, and around the middle would be a slip of paper with our address on it, and a stamp. It was delivered by the postie[1]. As we lived many miles from the nearest shop it was easier, cheaper and more convenient to have a newspaper account at the nearest shop who would then bundle and post it.
