Durban Central Post Office


by pasja1000

"Durban's Former City Hall"

A significant part of both Durban's government and architectural history, the Central Post Office was originally built in 1885 to serve as City Hall. A beautiful example of neo-classical architecture, this may be one of the most visually striking buildings in the city, particularly as it is set amidst the skyscrapers of the modern city center. Replaced by the current City Hall in 1910, the building now serves as the city's central post office, but its rich history still makes it a popular tourist attraction. One such historic event was a speech given by Winston Churchill on the step of the building in 1900, during the Anglo-Boer War, which is commemorated by a plaque.
