Prior Planning

 

The entire appropritation of $125,000 was expected to be available for the building since the site on North Sam Houston Boulevard park was donated by the city. The 87,000 federal building was one of the handsomest buildings in the state.

There were 1,349 boxes in the post office of four sizes to take the place of 831 in the former post office. A deposit of 20 cents was required on each key issued to the box holder.
