What does "EP" stand for?

"Vesey I"
Oil on canvas
24 x 30 inches

That was the question I had since doing two paintings of the facade of 20 Vesey Street. I posted the question to Tom, writer of the daily blog, A Daytonian in Manhattan. He went into Sherlock Holmes mode and discovered a fascinating history behind the facade of this beautiful, Art Nouveau inspired architectural gem. For all of you architectural historians out there, click on this link to read all about it.

And the initals EP on the iron work stand for the Evening Post, mystery solved. Thanks Tom for all of the research and an answer to my question.

This is a wonderful painting. The color combination is so rich. Thanks for it and for the link to A Daytonian in Manhattan. I love being able to find more info about NYCs architecture!
