Millers Point, post office

This former Millers Point post office is located on the corner of Kent Street and Argyle Street, in the inner city suburb of Millers Point. It was built in 1891 in the Federation Free Classical Style and was designed by Walter Liberty Vernon.

  7. The roof line is an interesting wave feature and it seems to be painted to draw attention to it. Unusual building style.

  9. I noticed it has cameras on the corner, one facing one way and another the other. I wonder how many cities are incorporating street cameras?

    1. You see them so often that you don't notice them as much any more. Not sure what this building is used for these days but it may require extra security.
