Grand Ledge, MI 48837
Title of the artwork “Waiting for the Mail”
Artists: James Calder
Welcome to Grand Ledge, Michigan. It’s great to see a healthy and well maintained building. That sums up my observance of the Grand Ledge Post Office. Although it was a Sunday the lobby was open and I was able to view the mural. Even though it was from a distance because of the way the lobby is set up with the vestibule I was still able to get several photos of the mural.
I also found it rather amusing chasing after the corner-stone on this one. As you can see from the photos. It’s in the lower left corner of the building. What I noticed, is that over the years it appears they have built up some landscaping. I had to pat down some of the vegetation in order to get a clean shot of the corner-stone. Yes, that’s my tripod feet in one of corner-stone pictures. As I was doing this I imagine one day someone is going to stop me and ask what the heck I’m doing and why I’m in the bushes or flower beds. But for now I’m successfully documented another building. All for your pleasure of course.
Thanks for stopping by
