General Post Office, Martin Place

Covering an entire city block, the General Post Office was constructed in three stages from 1866 to 1886. The building is the work of colonial architect James Barnet and was conceived in the form of a great renaissance palazzo with a central 70m high clock tower. There are 20 monumental polished granite columns to the ground floor arcade. The building is simply magnificent.
