St. James Branch Post Office

San Jose, California

Post Office Photo

This beautiful building was designed by Ralph Wyckoff to house San Jose's Main Post Office. It was built as a W.P.A. project in 1933 and is a prime example of Depression-era federal construction. The terra cotta work on the building's exterior is particularly fine. Although the Main Post Office has since moved, this building continues to serve as a downtown branch post office, located at 105 North First Street, across from St. James Park.
