Maryland is one of the constituent states of the united states of America. It became admitted to the union on April 28, 1788. The state got its name from Henrietta Maria, who was the wife of King Charles 1. Maryland shares then famous mason and Dixon line to its north with Pennsylvania.
The Mason and Dixon line was used in the 1760s to settle disputes between the Calvert and Penn families. To the state’s south, it shares a boundary with Virginia created by the Potomac River. Maryland covers an area of approximately 32,131 square kilometers with its capital Annapolis.
In Baltimore, there is a united state post office and courthouse. The post office was built in 1930 and covered approximately 1.3 acres. The 6-story building, designed by James Wetmore, is made from a steel frame, a tile roof, and has classical ornamentation. Currently, the post office is used by the Baltimore city courts, and today there are 872 USPS post offices in Baltimore to cater to the Baltimorean’s’ mails.
The Calvert street post office was quite important to the Baltimoreans. Its operations greatly grew most, especially when it handled 146,602622 ordinary mails and increased to handle more than 7 million emails in 1930. Due to increased operations, anew Calvert street post office was built.
The historic silver spring post office was constructed by the Works Progress administration through the treasury department between 1936 and 1937. “The Old Tavern” mural by Nicolai Cikovsky originally hung in the post office before the USPS sold it in 1981.
It is an oil and canvas mural that shows the American’s history in the civil war union. In the mural, soldiers rest in front of the Eagle inn, reading the notes sent from their homes. Today post offices have surpassed the qualities they earlier offered in their early days. The Maryland post offices boast excellent services in collecting, distributing, tracking, processing mail, and customer care.
