Dedication

 

Inspection and open house were held Saturday, April 15 from 2 to 5 p.m. Visitors inspected the new building to the strains of Eddie Werner's Orchestra. More than 3,000 persons inspected the new federal facility. Postal employees were at their newly assigned places and directed patrons and visitors about the building. Bouquets of roses decorated the shiny new furnishings. Music in the lobby was provided during the reception by a Hawaiian trio.

Visitors were greeted by F.S.Worth, postmaster, in his office. C.L.Milner, Assistant Postmaster, whose offices were in the southeast corner, welcomed visitors from the cool, well-ventilated interior used as the post office proper as they started their inspection of the upper floor. Limit set for finishing the building was May 6.
