The Syracuse, New York, post office under construction circa 1885, at the corner of Fayette and Warren Streets. It took four years to build.
The building was completed in 1889, free-standing, Richardsonian Romanesque.
The Syracuse post office being demolished in 1949 to make way for an eventual expansion of Merchants Bank. It took four months to destroy the stone building. The crew said it was the best built they had ever seen.
