Port Louis – The Central Post Office – 1960s

Found in the Capital City of Port Louis, the Central Post Office (also known as the General Post Office) dates back since the early Colonial period. The building was erected in 1868, but was inaugurated in December 1870 by Governor Gordon. The Post Office now acts as a Postal Museum showing the history of the Postal Services in Mauritius ranging from old stamps to even some railway history as previously the Postal Services were effected through railway stations acting also as Post Offices in a certain way. We can also notice that this wide space in front of the Colonial building we can see in the above picture has also disappeared, and replaced by the motorway which passes in front of it.
