This postcard shows an exhibit that was located in the Jerome, Arizona Old Post Office.

These dummies were made by grade school youngsters. When the mine closed, the figures were made to be placed in vacant store windows. Contests were held between grade school classes and prizes were given for the best work. The dummies are shown displayed in the Old Post Office Cigar Store Building, later known as the Unusual Shop, which no longer exists today. [2021]

The building was constructed in 1899, around what is today 140 Main Street.  It was originally called the Post Office cigar store because it was located directly across the street from the Post Office.  It was purchased by the Jerome Historical Society in 1953, and sold by them in 1984, after which it was torn down.  Today (2021), the new building on the site houses the Puscifer Store.
