Help me identify uniforms worn in an antique pencil watercolor. And maybe a guess as to where it was recorded.

Found this little drawing/watercolor at a consignment shop. Overall
. I really like it but am struggling to figure out who it is depicting. Trying to pin down the date based on the uniforms but have not gotten very far. Someone suggested mail carriers which might make sense considering one is carrying a bag over his shoulder and the other is holding what looks like an envelope.

Would love to hear any ideas and also any thoughts on where it might be taking place. It is saying Philadelphia or Washington DC to me.
