WORKMEN AT THE POST OFFICE, C. 1915. Nine more workmen pose in front of a half-open door, showing a light fixture inside. While most of the men wear coats and a few wear ties, their well-worn boots and mix of caps and hats suggests that these are not office workers. The steam radiator at left was removed during the remodeling and awaits reinstallation.
