Landmark Architecture

General Post Office, Perth
The General Post Office is a heritage landmark building in Perth, Western Australia.
Its imposing stone facade is in the Beaux-Arts style. The building was completed in 1923
after almost a decade of construction, which was protracted by World War I
and the resulting shortages of construction materials.

This is a very imposing post office, but does it make the service any more efficient? ;)

Now that is a real post office. Our Town Centre post office was in a building with columns a couple of decades ago, then a modest modern building in a 'cheaper' location, now it is tucked away within a stationary shop.

Excellent architectural capture, Sheila, and a magnificent building. Not what I would normally expect to find in Perth (I just remember it being more modern than this).

The people show just how large this building is. I'm pleased you still have many older buildings following the "Bond Blast " of the 80's :0)

Beautiful symmetry Sheila! Love the architecture!
Is the postal service in Australia in financial ruin like it is in the US?
