Uniforms became the main identifier of postal personnel that distinguished them from other members of the public as early as mid-18th century. They cultivated a sense of professional pride and certain exclusivity among employees of the Post and contributed to their corporate feeling. Today they serve as historical evidence of the material and cultural history of the Post and its employees as well as of period fashions and the social, economic and spiritual environment in the Austrian monarchy, interwar and postwar Czechoslovakia.
