Elsternwick Post Office 1891

Repost this day 2018:

The fine #ElsternwickPostOffice, built in 1891 in the then new #QueenAnne style; the Victorian #PublicWorksDepartment under #JHMarsden from 1890 went all experimental, abandoning the clearly Gothic or Italianate for Romanesque, Queen Anne, Flemish, Scottish Baronial or an eclectic mix- this one clearly QueenAnne/Flemish. Originally it had cute verandahs each side, clearly shown in the only old photos I could find which are from odd angles.
