I Found Toronto’s First Post Office
I was walking down Adelaide the other day in Toronto looking for a post office. Google told me there is a post office a few blocks away at 260 Adelaide Street, right next to the George Brown College. When I walked in, the vintage look and furniture took me back a century, and the teller confirmed that I was in Toronto’s first post office. It goes way back to 1834 and was built by the then Postmaster of York, James Scott Howard.
If you want to try it, you can even write letters with a quill pen and seal them with wax at this post office, just like the old days.
