New Post Office – 1934

Happy Friday again! Today, we take a look at this photo dated June 26, 1934.

The caption reads:

    “New Federal Post Office”

The new Dominion Public Building at 185 Ouellette was designed by a team of local architects: Guy Buller Colthurst, Hugh Sheppard, George Masson and John Trace came up with the plans in 1932. The photo above ran in honour of the dedication of the new building which occurred on June 27, 1934.

The Hon. Robert J. Manion, minister of Railways and Canals, along with Col. Sidney C.Robinson, M.P. for Essex West were the ones to dedicate the building.

Have a good weekend everyone, see you back here Monday…
