A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida and southern New England and other places he goes.
We don't have post offices like this one in Haninge. The question is if we have any at all!
Dad pounded the pavement of the West End here for 35 years, helping Uncle Sam get the letters out.
Amazing angle in this picture, really wonderful and I love the eagle detail!Happy weekend,hugsLéia
Historically, post offices, banks, and Carnegie libraries had marvelous architecture.
They don't make them like that any more. In fact, like Stefan says, they simply don't make them any more, over here.
No wonder the price of stamps keeps climbing!V
It is a super building and your creativity makes for a really interesting photograph.
Long live the art deco style, thank goodness so much has been preserved. We have an amazing amount here in Perth also..really like it a lot. Super detail here Jack
Great, detailed capture, Jack! Wonderful old building and I love the classical style and the detail. We don't see too much of that here in the northwest. Have a great weekend!
I would call this very elegant.
Looks like a building mostly influenced by the ancient Greeks. Fine looking eagle carving.
I love the style of the building and I love your shot, Jack!
Incredible attention to detail.My dad was also a letter carrier, the bulk of his working life, up to retirement.
What wonderful details.
Well done, nice details. The eagle is a very recurrent motif.
Beautiful detail, very elegant, we don't have such post officies here...Love the eagle.
I bet stamps cost 1, 2 or 3 cents each back then. I wonder where the government found the money to build these beautiful buildings. Just wondering, Jack. I don't need an answer. :))
Definitely gorgeous and I like the way you composed the photo.
