Post Office Buildings

New London, CT

Norwich, CT

You don't see post office buildings like this much anymore.  I thought it would be interesting to compare the post offices from both Norwich and New London.  I would guess they were built about the same time.  They are both beautiful structures, and although I haven't been inside the Norwich Post Office, I can say that if you ever visit New London, you should really visit the post office there.  There are some magnificent murals inside, and it's like taking a step back in time.   Recently postal rates went up to 49¢ to mail a letter first class.  I would like to think that a small portion of that insures that these old buildings will still be maintained.
