to Miss Lillian Corbin, 625 Washington St., Newport, Ky,
There was so much of interest in your last letter I can't even attempt to answer, so will
just send you a picture of a section of Pike St in Florence, looking toward Erlanger from Charley M's

Florence Post Office
The post office was in Jim Tanner's Hardware Store, in the left in this image.
A hundred years ago, PO's were a cabinet in a corner store, and whose store housed the PO
was subject to change every time the political winds shifted.
A little background on Florence post offices is here. (pdf)
