Kingsessing Station Post Office (former) – Philadelphia PA

Description

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s old Kingsessing Station post office, located at the western corner of Whitby Ave. and S 52nd St., was constructed during the Great Depression with federal Treasury Department funds. The building is now privately owned. A pair of New Deal murals that had been housed at the post offices have been relocated to a non-public setting.
