  Arrowtown Post Office
by kiwi

Favorite thing: This old post office, although adjacent to the site of the original one, was rebuilt in 1915. It was renovated in 1988 and is now run as a postal agency by the Lakes District Museum.
The pillar postbox is Edwardian and originally from Invercargill.

Fondest memory: These old buildings are interesting to see how they are constructed, but also they have a certain 'smell' about them, that you just don't get in new buildings.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
