Former post office, Crown Street Wollongong

P8010277

A reminder of a time when mail was seriously Royal Mail and the Postmaster-General an august personage and Australia Post a future bureaucratic/corporate nightmare.

It was expected that the Royal Arms of the Empire should preside over such important public buildings.

The present post office is a much more functional affair on the other side of the road and down a 1970s vintage arcade.
