Portsmouth, OH

This lovely old post office that once graced Portsmouth, Ohio, was built of limestone from the famed quarries of Bedford, Indiana. Sadly, it was replaced with a flat-faced monolith in 1936. I love the crowd of men that gathered on the corner when they saw a camera being set up. Below, another view, which includes the spire of the Sixth Street Church.

Although a box, the present day Portsmouth post office does have one distinction: Its basement is home to a museum of Roy Rogers memorabilia.
