Post Office - Tampa, Florida

1806 North Howard Avenue - While I find this 1958 post office, designed by Robert Wielage, interestesting, I don't find it particularly attractive.  Some of this is due to the red white and blue color scheme of the tile work (which is a color scheme that I never care for in decorating) and part of it is just due to the general bleakness of the site.  A couple of planters could go a long way here.  I do find the tile work cool and not of a pattern that one sees very often.  One end of the building (not pictured) housed a salon when I took these pics back in November.  The non-colored tile wall was either at this end of the building or on the side, I don't recall which.
