The Disappearing Art of Post Offices

 

For a month after I stopped working at the Post Office, I found myself drawn to them like I was in a weird, abusive relationship-cycle. I began to take pictures of them to provide some… catharsis?… closure? I don’t know. Anyway, there’s no denying the how cool the typeface is on some of these.  Two of these are already shut down, which makes these pictures ready for the history books.

Spotlight on Clydestown

The mailman/dog relationship is no lie. It’s like they can smell it on you, a scent that triggers their hunting instinct. But the owners are worse. Opposite of owners who talk to their pets in baby voice are the ones who scold their pets as if they were aristocratic children.

"He won't bite you, but he will lick you to death," - Every dog owner.
