DescriptionA view looking across the street at the Post Office and Delmonico Restaurant and Lunch Room. The two story brick building is decorated with large stars, flags, banners, streamers, and banners with stars on them. It probably is all decorated for the 4th of July. There are three large studio portrait photographs handing on the post office wall with decorations. There are five men and one women standing outside the Post Office doors. The men all have on hats, suits and jackets, while the woman wears a blouse and skirt. There is another two story brick building on next door on the left that has decorations and barrels out front, the sign says J.H. Crum.
