Old Post Office

Urban Sketchers Tacoma met to sketch at the Old Post Office.  We received a brief tour.

Helen in jail!  The building had housed the Court House… and the jail.

Bev sketches in the large hall.  The lights kept changing colors.

There were lots of good views out the windows and some nice 1910 architectural details inside.  But the view of a section of the building from across the street caught my eye.  I managed to stay warm enough in the 50 degree weather to get a sketch done.
