I love the art deco look

Lisa, I thought the same thing when I saw the lettering on the sign. The Art Deco period actually ended just as the post office was being built in 1939. The city has a great webpage explaining its history, including the mural. http://www.rockvillemd.gov/police/headquarters/

It's a really nice building and appears to be very well thought out. They have done a great job with it. So glad that they kep the mural, when I was a little lad, my Dad worked across the street at Stackhouse Realty in the old house behind People's Drug Store. Mr. Stackhouse would send me over to the Post Office to pick their mail and I would always stop and analyze that mural........
