Here’s my first attempt at posting a Google custom map. This one is about Riverton, of course, but the theme is Riverton Post Office Locations. Click on the link and that should open a new window to a Google Maps page that shows the eight locations of the US Post Office in Riverton over the years.
A blog posted on May 2, Special Delivery – Riverton’s United States Post Office, has more information about those eight locations of Riverton’s post offices.
Icons on the map show addresses for each post office, and clicking on each one pops up a box with a caption.
Its navigation works like any other Google Map for moving, zooming, and toggling between views – Map, Satellite, or Earth.
But the biggest break I got was that all eight post office locations are along Main Street which was captured with the 360-degree, panoramic, and street-level imagery called Street View.
To view street-level imagery in Google Maps, click and drag Pegman to the place you want to see.
When dragging the pegman icon, blue lines on the map showing Street View imagery will appear. If you do not see blue lines appear it is because that road was not photographed in Street View; pegman will not “stick” to such streets.
As long as you are here, you might want to look around your old hometown. Just know that Street View is only enabled for Main Street, Broad Street, and 7th.
