They slid down and we opened the bags and dumped the contents onto a second conveyor, which took the parcels to the sorting area.

Of course, the bags were filled with parcels bound for a common destination. So it wasn't uncommon to find a bowling ball or a car muffler in the same bag as a package that HAD contained a vase, a doll, or a toy.

Ah, the good old days.
