Traralgon, Australia

The post office in Traralgon, Victoria, Australia, has survived many brushes with development and death, but stands proud; one newspaper described it thusly: “Post office spared from technological martyrdom.” Built in 1886-1887, this whimsical beauty originally included upstairs living quarters for the postmistress, Mrs. Betty Starke, and access to the platform behind the clock tower “from which a great view of the town and surrounds could be obtained.” Good on you, Traralgon.
