Washington Post Employees Took Lots of Photos With Their Old Sign

The Washington Post‘s sign vanished from its building on 15th Street, northwest, Tuesday. The paper plans to move to Franklin Square by mid-December. The old sign will be preserved inside the new building, on the fourth floor, HR VP Wayne Connell told employees in a memo Monday, reminding them, “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.”

Here are some of the people who took him up on the offer. Send me links to your selfies/portraits with the sign:

First day of the new gig, last day with our #washingtonpost sign before we move. But really sharing this pic because of @larimers and her A+ photo bombing skillz.

Taking in the last day of the @washingtonpost sign on 15th Street. It’s moving with us to our new HQ in December.

This one is perhaps the best, and it’s not even taken by a Post employee!

Here are two Post staffers who showed up too late to get the sign in their selfie: Joe Heim, left, and Steve Hendrix.
