re: Post Office dedication Rhinebeck,New York 1939

The photo of the Poughkeepsie Post Office also has a post card below it of the Poughkeepsie Journal (newspaper) building. They are across the street from each other. I always liked those two buildings. They were very 18th century-like.

I used to report the baseball news from my high school by writing the short article, and then going there after our games (I was on the team as well.). I never got a byline, but I wrote them. I still have a couple of the clippings. I lost the others. I never got paid for the submissions either. I asked if I would get paid for the articles. The sports editor said if I wanted to get paid, he wouldn't run the articles. Oh well, I did get published!

Thanks Tom, i did not have space to mention the art projects. Anthony P. Russo came to one of our stamp club meetings and gave such an excellent talk on his book FDR and the post office that even i dug down and found 15 dollars to purchase his book.

Phil, do you know if there is a mural in the Poughkeepsie Post Office. I don't remember. It's only been going on a half-century since I was inside there.

Michael, i was able to scan this much of the Poughkeepsie post office mural from the FDR book. It depicts the old and new on the river... a sloop and a steamer. Of all the times i have been to the courthouse for jury and grand jury duty...i regret that i never took a walk to the post office.Image Not Found

re: Post Office dedication Rhinebeck,New York 1939

When I went in the post office, I was just a teenager looking for stamps to buy. Now, I'd look about to see the architecture and such, and then buy some stamps.

I want to take one more trip to Poughkeepsie and western New England for my model railroading. I thought it might be this summer as they tossed together a high school reunion, but money isn't plentiful this year. Maybe in another year or two I'll be able to do it.
