Nice building, which stands out from the others around, but really only worth 3 minutes of admiration. Put it on your "to pass" list on your itinirary in downtown San Jose.

We bought some postcards to send Christmas wishes back home to Canada, and went to the main Post Office to mail them. A beautiful old building in excellent shape right in the heart of old downtown. We walked past there nearly every day.
