Post office in my summer place

23rd November 2015

There is only one post office in my summer place but it looks lovely. It was built in 19th century but lately it has been renovated.




Nowadays people are sending less and less letters because text messages are much popular. 
Polish people order a lot of online so the post office delivers packages. It is the most popular action of our post office now..

    1. Grammatical errors!!! Not a good effort by me - thus deleted.

      That Post Office is very elaborate and ornate - the only Post
      Offices now of note here are in the capital cities, very large towns
      or towns which were of major importance in previous years. Post
      offices in little country towns are like pubs - meeting places for the
      farming fraternity or as these farming people are called here - "COCKIES".
      I have no idea the origin of this Aussie expression - but my family
      came from the "COCKY" brigade - ha ha
      I see you are not a lover of rain from an answer in the last blog.
      Hmmmmmmmmm! You wouldn't make a country girl here in Australia.
      Rain is the lifeline for the "COCKY" brigade and rural towns also.
      Actually much more rain is needed in the "outback" and the "not so outback"
      for good summer grass growth for stock and to alleviate against the summer season bush fire threats.

      Thanks for the weather report reply for your Christmas - minus 2 Celsius and snow - thank you, Gosia, a most definite - "NO THANK YOU'.
      That is Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!! weather - I'll take our heat.
      Cheers

  2. It is the same here. Very few letters but lots of parcels. Our post offices are no longer grand old buildings like yours, but small shops.

  3. The rather ornate Post Office in my suburb of Brisbane - Albion, is now the
    State Office for the Federal Attorney-General, George Brandis.

  5. The Post Office still seems to serve a purpose, but I know they are now operating in the "red" in the US. It will be interesting to see how technology continues to change the postal system. Love that old willow tree in front.
