Although it may have taken ten years to complete due to shortages of building material during WW1, the General Post Office has been sitting solidly in the centre of the city since it's completion in 1923, glass skyscrapers rising up all around. Next door, although only eight floors, the Albert Facey building check here (super pic) reflects the PO above alongside a newbie behind.
I like that the Christmas decorations for this old beauty, one of my favourite buildings in the city, are not over the top.. a seasonal wreath in each of the arched windows..
... and angels, wings glinting in the Perth sunshine heralding in a joyeux Noël. I remember when we first came to Perth and I was working in the city, it was such a pleasure to go into the post office, the jarrah floors and fittings were tres grande.. the floors are still there, but the modern day post office takes up very little floor space now.. I wonder what happened to those solid jarrah counter-tops!
The only deer head I'd ever consider putting up on a wall.. designed in Italy, manufactured in Germany from recycled MDF and sold through MIHO Unexpected Things Home Decor.. I might have to find a spot :) More 'unexpected' things tomorrow, one in particular that I'm sure would not be found in 'ye olde England' :) Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe... p.s. you weren't expecting that were you :)
