Post Office Boxes

Old-school post office boxes at the El Cerrito P.O. These remind me of childhood trips to visit grandpa, how he went to visit his p.o. box every day, the limitless rows of windows and dials, the lock’s combination made of letters rather than numbers (though this one is not), the thrill of pulling out envelopes and looking through to the innards of the post office, the detail and filigree of the eagle and the surrounding design, that 1930s-style drop-shadow on the box number…

But mostly I’m digging the fact that NetPBM installed properly when ImageMagick would not. :)
