Post Office

Inside the Post Office Wingina, VA

Being in the rural countryside is like taking a step back in time. The post office dates back nearly a century and it doesn’t look like anything has changed. The back window is where you can buy your stamps and on the right side there is an old-fashioned cash register that looks like it could hold a nice chunk of change. Unlike DC, there are no lines at this post office, no plexiglass windows separating customer and postal worker, and a variety of forever stamps to purchase. I got a sheet of “Jazz” just in preparation for the pending government shut down. But, I learned from Barbara, the postmaster, that the post office won’t be closing. They expect to have their normal business hours tomorrow starting at 8 a.m. and closing at 9:15 a.m. At least someone will be open for business.

    This is awesome – I love that some places are still just as they were 50 years ago.
