140. Theme 315 ~Symbols~

Roman numerals…

This photo is part of the Main Post Office in Manhattan. It’s famous for bearing the slogan – “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” although I don’t think that’s applicable these days!  HERE is a link if you want to check it out. Click on the photo to enlarge it– it’s an absolutely gorgeous building.
