|The Beautiful Pasadena Post Office|
Visiting Pasadena last week, out on a walk in the 82' sunshine, I spied this old beauty
and went inside to take a look.
|A marble entry hall and a lovely decorative ceiling...|
|Now THIS is the way a post office should look -- balcony? Check. Gold paint? Check.|
Vintage tables? Check. Old wood? Check.
I think I'll move right in.
|They must be busy because they had to add a bunch of new PO Boxes|
that just don't have the same charm as the old ones.
|I rest my case -- here are the charmers.|
This post office is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
I'd like to vist every PO on that list.
|Mail your letters? Don't mind if I do....|
|They kept the beautiful vintage tables if you want to jot a postcard right on the spot.|
|I'd like to take this home...make a good desk for my typewriter.|
I think I'd like a Pasadena PO Box......but not this one...
|Look at these beautiful brass eagles!|
|THIS is the one I want!|
|Mailing letters out front....|
It's a long drive down Hwy 5 from SF to LA but totally worth it
to check out that beautiful PO. Just hop on 5 and......
|.....take the Pasadena freeway to Colorado Blvd.....|
Pasadena is also known as Rose City
