Louisville, KY

The U.S. Customs House and Post Office in Louisville, Kentucky, which opened in 1892, was described as the most notable building in the city until it was demolished in 1942-1943. But what a magnificent structure it was while it lasted. I love the columns that go from the second to the fourth story, and the tower that’s practically in the clouds.

On this postcard, however, the photographer chose a different angle, bringing Standard Cleaning into prominence. And below, a more traditional view.
