USA: Ochopee Post Office

On Monday I got three postcards: one from the USA, one from South Korea and one from Brazil.

The card from the USA shows the Ochopee Post Office in the US State of Florida. The Ochopee Post Office is said to be the smallest post office in the USA. In 1953 the post office building of Ochopee was destroyed by a fire, but to keep up the mail service the post office moved to the irrigation pipe shed which still houses it today. Despite its small size it offers all post services. The post office is a popular destination for tourists and stamp collectors.


Stamps:
Penguins (issued 01-06-2015)
Skywriting (issued 07-01-2017)
Ray Charles (issued 23-09-2013)
with the special postmark of the Ochopee Post Office


Thank You very much Chrystal!
