The post office building and D. McCoy are mentioned several times in today’s post. I have not been able to determine what happened to the huge building that once occupied Main and Buffalo. It is still visible in photos taken in 1938. If anyone has any memory of when it was torn down or why, I would appreciate a clue so I can look for it in the papers.
