Hillsboro Post Office


Hillsboro Post Office


Sepia-toned image of people and two horse-drawn carriages standing in front of a brick building. Another matched team of horses appears to be hitched up to a large bundle of firewood. Four people stand on the boardwalk in front of the building, two men and two women. The women wear white shirtwaists with leg-o'-mutton sleeves and long black skirts. One man is in a suit, as are the two men with the carriages. The fourth man stands behind the team of horses and is wearing work clothes. Small United States flags are displayed on the window edges of the main building. 'Post' is written across one window, and 'Office' on the second. A power pole is just visible in the far left of the image.
