New Castle, Delaware Post Office
“New Castle is historically and architecturally the most important town in Delaware, so that great care had to be taken to provide a post office which would blend with the many fine old colonial buildings. The building constructed accomplishes this. The mailing platform and vestibule are in a wing and the drive for the trucks is screened from the street by a wall and fence. The plan is the ‘one man’ type with the postmaster’s office connected with both lobby and workroom. It was completed in March 1936 at a cost of $41,179.”
