Hubby works in a former post office that still has intact murals. None as lovely as the ones depicted on these new stamps.

Our PO downtown had an awesome mural. Then 20 or so years ago some genius city planner decided our town would be developing southward. Wrong, the most dense development is east. Moved the PO and the DMV clear out to kingdom come, practically outside the city limits. Turned that PO building into a complex for federal agency offices. I don't know if they kept the mural, never been in there since.

I had forgotten about that mural until i saw those stamps
