I have seen this style many times in late Victorian post officers, including the impressive clock tower. But I don't remember another cupola on a post office. Very cool!
Playing catch up on your blog. Gotta love a beautiful post office. The little dog statue is adorable. We've got one beside the author O.Henry's monument. If I ever post on it, will let you know.Cheers,JanGDLP
oops,Jan @ GDP *not* GDLP!!! (reminds me of gulp).
What a neat place! Wow. Very, very beautiful. Those were the days....of building for the ages.
the paint looks fresh in this pictrue and the sky is wo derfully blue, you take such a good pictrue
I love the contrast of the colors in this photo. How interesting to see such a beautiful building that was built in 1882! Someday, I will visit your lovely country.
Very nice building and photo. I wonder if modern day architects will ever look back on Victorian style buildings as something to aspire to. They should, IMHO.
Hi J Bar!You have an award to get at my blogif you want/ / Magdalena
What a wonderful sight. Makes one for sure feel special while entering such a building, and letters obtain a meaning again. Please have a nice Sunday.daily athens
That's great. I am amazed that it's STILL a Post Office and not some sort of "take away"...
Magdalena, thank you for the award for my blog. You are very kind.
That post office looks classic and charming!
great shot - the person gives it a sense of scale
What a fantastic building, so different from what we see here in Israel.-----------------------------------My photography is now available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!
But it is no longer used as a PO and they are struggling to find someone to lease it last time I wandered past.
JimDiane & Bill are in Sydney from Brisbane awaiting the birth of their first grandchild. Would you be interested in a blogger get-together on the weekend of 15/16 May? I will invite Ann, Joan from Blue Mts, Sally and Peter from N.Beaches. Let me know.
Lovely building... sadly, many buildings of this age have not been preserved in Singapore. Those that were kept for their heritage value have often being given new purposes and a somewhat contrived modern sheen. Although our General Post Office's (circa 1874) transformation into the stately Fullerton Hotel would be a notable exception.
Jim, nothing has been decided as yet. I have coffee with Diane & Bill tomorrow arvo. I am proposing Sunday 16th May at midday on the roof of The Glenmore down in The Rocks. Which part, if any, of that causes you grief?
Got a proposed change already, Jim.How are you fixed for Saturday 15th May at midday at The Glenmore in The Rocks.
Saturday 15th (or Sunday 16th) at midday should be okay. Keep me posted of confirmation or changes.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
