|I was visiting my daughter this week in Southern Ca. and finally got to|
pay a visit to the Redlands Postal Museum.
|The Museum is tucked away in the historic Main Post Office at 201 Brookside Avenue in|
Redlands, CA. This lovely building is on the National Register of Historic Places. Several
years ago it was in danger of being sold.
|This is the grand interior of the old post office with the vaulted ceiling and|
wood beamed ceiling. I am so relieved they saved the post office.
|Look at the beautiful arches with the ornamental ironwork where the P.O. boxes are housed.|
|This case in the post office lobby has a display of letters and post cards|
mailed long ago.
|This is the first photo taken in the Redlands Postal Museum. They saved|
the old window from a post office and put it on display. The next series of
photographs are some of the items displayed in the museum.
|There was a wall of old mail bags on display.|
|And of course you have to have letter carriers hats on display too.|
