The Washington Post‘s sign will come off its 15th Street headquarters on Tuesday, HR VP Wayne Connell told employees in a memo Monday. Get out those selfie sticks! “If you’d like a last-minute photo of the building with our sign still in place, now would be the time to take it,” Connell writes. “Just didn’t want you to be surprised,” he says of the change.

The old sign will accompany the Post to its new, hopefully far cleaner headquarters: “It will be displayed on the inside of the 4th floor, and will probably be the first thing you see as you exit the elevators.”

Washingtonian will aggressively monitor Post employees’ Twitter accounts for excellent selfies. Here’s Connell’s memo:

To All Post Employees,

If relocation has felt more like an abstract concept to this point, that is likely to change this week. Among other things, you’ve probably noticed personal item move kits being delivered throughout the building this morning.

We also wanted to let you know that The Washington Post sign over the main entrance on 15th Street will be taken down tomorrow. If you’d like a last-minute photo of the building with our sign still in place, now would be the time to take it. But not to worry, our sign is coming with us (which is why it’s being taken down early). It will be displayed on the inside of the 4th floor, and will probably be the first thing you see as you exit the elevators. Just didn’t want you to be surprised.

Many thanks,

Wayne
