Day 93, Lamp, Main Post Office, Riverside, CA

Here is another older building in Riverside. Old for Riverside, but not that old when you look at other places in the country. According to the City's site on Historic Districts and Buildings, it was built in 1930 by Robert E. McKee. No Architect is listed. It has always been a post office. Inside there are adornments that match the era, the picture of the lamp being one example. When I go back, I will take the tripod and shoot a longer exposure.  The fuzzienss is the dust that was built up on it.  Maybe I will take a can of compressed air like for my computer...

The PO Boxes seem to be from the same era, but oddly enough they are labeled with a Modern P-Touch. Inside I found the building to be dark and to have wood paneling to match its age. The plaster inside had more then a couple places where repair was needed and the plaster was falling away. I want to go back and shoot the cupola and see if they turn any lights on as dusk begins to settle.  BTW, did I mention that the Department of Agriculture rents the second floor?
