Photographer's Note

This is one of the street facades of Sydney's General Post Office. Situated at 1 Martin Place, the building has frontages on George Street, Martin Place and Pitt Street. It was designed in the neo-classical style by the colonial architect James Barnet and constructed between 1866 and 1891. Its clock tower was demolished in 1942 as it was thought to be a target during World War II. This beautiful building served as Sydney's central post office until 1996 when it was sold off in pieces to mostly foreign interests.
