This one has special significance for me as it’s in the lyrics of the Little Feat song, “Willin'”:
“I’ve been from Tucson to Tucumcari,
Tehachapi to Tonopah,
Driven every kind of rig that’s ever been made,
Driven the back roads so I wouldn’t get weighed,
And if you give me weed, whites, and wine,
And you show me a sign,
I’ll be willin’, to be movin’.”
And while I’m at it, I might as well include the Tucson, Arizona, post office:
Post office for the Carson Indian Agency, three miles outside Carson City, Nevada, built by students from the Stewart Indian School, taught by Hopi stone masons.
Here’s a forlorn post office, West Toledo, Ohio, in 1914, but it’s trying, with a Greek Revival facade and its name in stone over the door.
I love the tinting, and the fact that they managed to fit the Town Clerk’s Office, a General Store and the Post Office in one building.
I don’t know the location, but it was too perfect not to post.
