This is an amazing picture. Love it, The picture  was taken in Streeter, West Virginia, The postmaster is beautiful with a beautiful smile.The flag is a 50 star flag so the picture was taken after 1960. The Post Office did not officially use zip codes until 1963. The two letter State identification with no periods after the abbreviation and a space between W and V was not used until the 1982 I think. She is also wearing a plastic name tag from the US Postal Office with the eagle logo which was not used until the 1970's  They did not use an eagle before 1970 and in the 1990's they began to use the current logo with the eagle. I guess the picture was taken between 1982 and 1989. I hope this helps :o) Thanks for showing the picture of this beautiful woman with a wonderful smile.

Thank you Pip. I only knew some of that information. The rest I researched. I noticed details on the photograph because I like to use my cameras and I use my own darkroom when I do get a chance to get film.
My husband was still living when this post office was closed and Aunt Mary was able to use with permission the Streeter, WV zip code until her death in 1995.  It used to be called the Vandalia Post Office a very long time ago. I believed it closed around 1985 somewhere in there. Thank you guys for your wonderful answers.  She was an awesome Lady and her daughters each had post offices of their own in Summers County.  Two are deceased and one is still living.
