Cheers Fogbrain. I checked for a Post Office on the corner with Parkers Row and Hickmans Folly but had no luck. Re-checking on a 1900s and a 1950s map it does not show or indicate a Post Office being there. Either way we do know that it was in Jamaica Road.

Hi Fogbrain, just found a simular picture and map in the Parkers Row Topic, showing the Post Office just where you said it was. :)

The gates were opposite Paradise Street. They were reconstructed in their new location when Jamaica Road was widened and the roundabout laid out.
