In Tel Aviv going to the post office can be an educational and artistic experience: HaShalom tower is Tel Aviv hosts exhibitions in its lobby, this one uncovering the story of the White City. Check out the fun and fashion in these vintage photos from the “good ol’ times”.
The Shalom Mayer Tower (where apparently my local post office is) stands at the centre of the historic little Tel Aviv, surrounded by the cafés of Rotschild boulevard. The tower is not simply an office building, but also a visitor’s center.
The lobby exhibition is a great (and free) way to learn about the cultural development of the first Hebrew city, and explore the fashion. The vintage photos are taken by a mysterious Mr. Korbman.
