Lawrence Post Office

The Lawrence Post and Telegraph Office has been operating out of this simple Federation building since 1896.

  1. I wonder when the last telegram was sent from here. I think it's neat they're retained that particular sign.

  2. Wow, 1896. It’s good that the place still looks fine. I guess people took good care of it.

  3. I'm impressed at the Post Office, still standing two centuries after. Post Offices are my favourite spots, especially when I'm traveling. I send postcards to myself and a few friends as souvenir. I'd go inside this one in a heartbeat!

  8. I am amazed at how many people send post cards to themselves! I always felt a little foolish doing that, though I loved getting the card after coming home.

  9. with so many post offices being closed and moved to amalgamate with larger centres, this one should be cherished.
