Walk along any main street in a small town Ontario and a clock tower on a building such as this will likely be the Post Office. This Beaux Arts building that sits on a prominent corner in downtown Brantford was built in 1913.

  1. It looks as if you have the same moody, gray, grumpy skies that we have here in Seattle — well, except for today and they are returning tomorrow. Terrific capture, the clouds do make a wonderful backdrop for the Post Office! Hope you have a great weekend, Lesley!


  2. Impressive building. I love old buildings like this.

  3. Interesting architecture in this, but then you show us a lot of interesting buildings.

  4. great angle shot. i’ve seen a similar building in Fort Worth, Texas.

  5. Much more impressive that the typical post office in my part of the world. Nice shot!

  6. The post office building is from a day when mail was a major form of communication. In 1913 it would not have been known as Canada Post. It would have been The Royal Mail.

  7. Very impressive structure. Thanks for sharing!
