    The photo on this page is not of the Hamburg Post Office – this is the 1917 Carnegie Library. I don’t have a photo to share but Google’s street view pretty much confirms this.

    Fantastic site though – lots of excellent information. Short of personally visiting each location, I’m sure an occasional error creeps in. Thanks for all your hard work.

      Thank you for passing this info along! (And for understanding our occasional lapses.) I’ve removed the image and we’ll look for the correct one.
