I found a couple more post office postcards that will contrast the big city version with the small town version but these two have something in common. It was not unusual for the post office to share a building with another government office and our large city example is a combination of the Post Office and the Federal Building in Omaha Nebraska. This is a Curteich post card, was published in 1909 and is available on Moody's Postcards in the Nebraska listings.

The second postcard shows the Key West Florida Post Office and Custom House and while much smaller, it is a beautiful building. This is also a Curteich post card, was published in 1907 and is available in the Florida listings on my website, Moody's Postcards.
