News and Online Community for Culver City - The New Scene
[photo by Chris Grossman]
Every other Friday, I post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.' Two weeks ago I asked: Do you know where in Culver City this sign is?
Culver City Times member Evlynne Braithwaite Householder was the first to correctly identify it as "the post office on Culver Blvd." Culver CIty Times member Chris Grossman was also kind enough to post another of his beautiful pictures (see above).
According to the cornerstone of the building, it was erected in 1940 by the architect Louis Simon (who was actually renowned for designing post office buildings throughout the country). It also identifies the nation's Postmaster General at the time as James A. Farley (the namesake of the main post office building in New York City, the James Farley Post Office).
