Met Life Insurance Calendar

Let's see, I must have 5 cents in stamps around here somewhere. It doesn't say anything about a deadline and I would love to have one of those calendars.

This card was printed in 1907, when the Met Life building was a mere 11 stories tall. Two years later, a new Met Life world headquarters was built on the same spot. The new tower was designed by Napoleon LeBrun and Sons and was the world's tallest building for four years until the Woolworth building was built. It served as Met Life's world headquarters until 2005! The building is designated a national historic landmark.

  1. Thanks for the Met Life history. And I think you'll like what I have scheduled for PFF coming up!
