This simple granite 1940s Colonial Revival sub-post office station on Beach Street, in the Wollaston section, was designed by architect Louis A. Simon. It is one of Quincy's monuments to the WPA project launched in 1935 by President Roosevelt to tackle the Depression problem of aid for the unemployed through a work-relief program which built roads, schools, park structures and civic buildings. At the peak of the Depression, Quincy had over 10,000 people on relief rolls making worthwhile, long-lasting improvements to the city like the fine Post Office building shown here.
