    This series of photographs were taken on October 22, 1936 at the Ceremony for the Laying of the Cornerstone for the new Post Office in Howell, Michigan.  It was located at 123 South Walnut Street.

    The Howell Post Office was the first Federal building in Livingston County.  The local committee, consisting of Postmaster Alfred H. Pfau, W.W. Blackney, Congressman of the 6th District of Flint, and Charles P. Adams, Mayor of Howell, had requested the Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons of Michigan to lay the cornerstone according to the ritual of the Order.  The Howell Commandery #28, Knights Templar, paraded from the Howell Lodge to the scene of the ceremony.    The line of march proceeded east on Sibley to Court, north on Court to Grand River Avenue, west on Grand River to Walnut and south on Walnut to the Post Office site.

    A half-day holiday was declared by Mayor Adams for the city of Howell.   The names of the persons in the photographs are unknown.
