Shorpy Saturday – Post Office Max: 1912

By Jeffrey Buck

I marvel at buildings built during this time period because of their incredible detail and beauty. It’s incredible to think about the planning and construction of these structures during a time when machinery played a much smaller role. The talent and skill is just beyond belief. A building gone to soon because of such rapid growth in Detroit that saw the population sky rocket in only a few years. If downtown be sure to visit its replacement.

Take a look at the photograph entitled “Post Office Max: 1912“:
