: Reverse reads: "Corner detail- eagle atop Springfield Federal Post Office Building."
This is a detail photograph of the U.S. Post Office located at 150 North Limestone Street, Springfield, Ohio. At the top two corners of the building are mounted 18-foot eagles, one on each side of the entrance facade, said to be the world's largest fully-molded eagles used in ornamental construction.
Construction began on this Art Deco style building in 1934 and has several murals by artist Herman Henry Wessel. In the 1970's these mural were covered up during energy conservation remodeling on the building, but in 2009, restoration began to restore these murals and the two story skylight.
