Moosa CA, the true 'smallest post office in the US'

In the United States many post offices have been said to be the 'smallest post office'. Since this notoriety carries with it increased marketing value, competition for this title has been notable over the years. I collect US 'smallest post office' postcards, covers, and ephemera and have put together an online exhibit of some of these items. The list of nine post offices is sorted by the size of the structure (square foot). If anyone has additional material/information on US smallest post offices and are either interested in selling or would like to add it to the online exhibit, please let me know.

Smallest I have seen is the abandoned one in kelso California. Here is a link:

https://www.google.com/search?q=kel...IMQBwZZ8RSfM and the next biggest is in Amboy California.i wonder if either of these would have any stamps left behind from when they were in use. The one originally posted has a great title.

These seem to be the smallest "stand alone post office buildings" but there were a great many post offices that were nothing more than a couple of square feet of counter space in the back of a store. The "postmaster" was the man wo woman who ran the store and did the postmastering job once in a while when there was a need.
