Thought I'd join in here:


Bloomington Springs, TN

Just moved this Summer to Baxter, TN. The P.O. in Baxter is fairly new and no more interesting than others that have been posted here, but this one is about 2 1/2 miles straight up a state highway from my subdivision. If I need mail to go today and I'm in a hurry, I can be there, drop off, and be home in about 6 minutes.
But it's only open until 2pm!

In 1724, Holy Roman-German Emperor asked the imperial Postmaster Prince Anselm Franz von Thurn und Taxis to take up residence in Frankfurt am Main. Between 1731 and 1739, he had a castle built in Frankfurt. In 1748, the castle became the administrative seat of the imperial post office operated by the Thurn und Taxis family.

In the same year, the Prince of Thurn und Taxis moved to Regensburg. The Holy Roman-German Empire was dissolved in 1806. When Bavaria took control of its own postal system in 1810, the House of Thurn und Taxis negotiated a postal monopoly within the Deutscher Bund and Frankfurt am Main became its seat. In 1895, Prince Albert I von Thurn und Taxis sold the castle to the Reichspost.

The castle was damaged by several bombing raids during World War II. Between 2004 and 2009, it was reconstructed in an altered form. It adjoins the MyZeil shopping centre that was constructed on a site used for decades by the Deutsche Bundespost.

There remain few post offices in Germany. Post Office counters often can be found at Deutsche Postbank offices. This is the office on the Goetheplatz 6 in the centre of Frankfurt am Main. The square is a few hundred metres from the old town and about 100 metres from the birth house of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. In front of the offices, next to the letter boxes stands a dispenser for variable value stamps (Automatenmarken).

This is a Postbank and Deutsche Post corner inside the 'Galleria Karstadt' store on Frankfurt am Main's high street, Zeil. It is about 200 metres from the Postbank offices on Goetheplatz. This 'post office' has two dispensers for variable value stamps. The second one stands on the other side of the pillar.

The Palazzo delle Poste in Trieste, Italy was built in eclectic style, in 1894. The architect was Friedrich Selz from Vienna.

The building stands on the site of a previous customs building that had been erected on the ancient salt pans.

On the lower floor is the Mitteleuropa Postal and Telegraph Museum that opens from 09:00 until 13:00 CET on weekdays. Trieste was an important harbour of the Austro-Hungarian Empire before it became part of Italy after World. War I
