The General Post Office, Dublin

Marie over at Cpaphil Vintage Postcards is the inspiration behind Postcard Friendship Friday. The idea behind PFF is to blog something every Friday on a postal theme and there is a community of bloggers participating from all over the world. Pay Marie a visit this Friday and link up with her PFF pals and join in the fun!

Con! What a breathtaking post office you have in Dublin! The proud Irish flag flapping in the wind is a pretty site to see too!

PS. I'm reading a book on Tudor Ireland right now:)

Huge and monumental post office. Actually I have visited this post office once, when I visited beautiful Dublin in the 1990's with my sister. I remember the interior best. Those classically designed desks and tables were beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

An incredibly impressive building. It looks more like a bank, a speak in hushed tones sort of place!

That looks a lot like the Utica insane asylum.

Thank you everybody for visiting and for your comments!
Yeah you're right "dmarks", just Googled Utica Insane Asylum and there is a remarkable similarity. Did some research and turns out both buildings are based on Greek Revival architecture. I learn something new every day!
