First Class, Pillars to Post

The old central post office downtown always offers something to see, whether you look at it inside or out, whether you look at its scale or its style. It was designed by architect (and engineer) Wyatt Hedrick, protégé of Sanguinet and Staats, and completed in 1933 (that was the year the movie King Kong premiered, FDR became president, and prohibition ended. And Yoko Ono, James Brown, and Willie Nelson were born).

Here are two small features of our palace of postage.
