Old-Post-Office-Winter

Overlooking the downtown and serving as a customs office, this stone building in the Romanesque style is an example of the post offices constructed in Canada’s small towns from 1881 to 1896.

 

Designed by the Department of Public Works under the direction of chief architect Thomas Fuller in an architectural style identified with the federal government, the building was meant to demonstrate the presence of the federal government in the country’s small municipalities.

 

Still braving the Canadian winters!!
