The Post Office in Black and White, 1935-1944 » Ruralinfo.net Postal News.

Taking pictures of post offices is a passion of many photographers, and for good reason.  Our country has are over 32,000 post offices, and they come in all shapes and sizes and vintages.  Many of them may seem rather modest and nondescript at first glance, but in the eye of a collector, there’s always something interesting to see.

Many post offices are worth a photo because they are historic buildings.  Over 2,500 post offices owned by the Postal Service are on or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, and many others are leased in historic buildings.
