Check It. Historical Post Offices.

I took a different route home than usual from the Glendale Galleria this afternoon after a quick exchange at the Gap. A pleasant discovery along the way was this awesome post office on East Broadway. According to the Glendale Historical Society, it was constructed between 1932 and 1934, and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. It was a collaboration between architects George M. Lindsey (who designed Los Feliz's Marshall High School--the most gorgeous public high school I've ever seen) and James A. Wetmore.

I paid the Hollywood Post Office (1615 Wilcox Avenue) a visit a few weeks ago, and while it wasn't an entirely pleasant experience, I did appreciate my art deco surroundings.

When you're doing necessary chores (or mailing love letters), may as well do it someplace beautiful.

The Glendale Post office is located at 313 East Broadway in Glendale, Calif.
