A simply beautiful building with a gem of an interior! You have gotta see it. A busy working main post office. Everyone is there taking photos!

It is one of multiple buildings in fine, old colonial French style. I love it, others are Cathedral, City Hall and few extra Hotels like Majestic, Grand or Continental - facing Opera House. Great place to visit.

I remember those banks of phones in Post Offices across Europe, back in the day! Not needed now in the Mobile Phone generation! Great to see they haven't removed them - a great colonial experience until you look up at Uncle... More
