What is so special about the Clyde Ohio Post Office? Well if you are a regular follower then you will know that some of my favorite post offices are one’s with grand murals. So I guess you are waiting for a grand mural inside the Clyde Ohio Post Office right? Not quite, but what makes this one so special is the wood carving. It’s different, it’s not a mural so it adds to the variety of artwork found at our nations post offices.
In fact, murals were one reason I spend so much time visiting post offices. When I initially discovered there were more than just murals you could imagine my surprise and delight. Not only does our national postal system have murals, but you may also find, wood carvings, plaster cast, metal designs and stone work. This is what makes my day. This is one reason I hate to see post offices up for sale or shut down. Its the artwork, its the character, its the design its the whole enchilada, that keeps me coming back for more.
