Wolverhampton…..

…..Post Office was a wonderful Victorian building from a time when having a Post Office was something of which a town was very proud. This office has closed down now but its importance can be seen from it’s high quality Victorian structure on a city main street. Not as it would be today, a utilitarian unit.
