This post office in Port Colborne is a typical brick box, but I include it because my father had a fishing cottage there. After he retired, he spent more and more time in Port Colborne, even in the winter, even after the cottage was torn down. When he died, I learned the name of his companion of 29 years, and a few more details of his second life there. I wonder if he ever mailed a letter at this post office.
Port Colborne, which sits on the northern shore of Lake Erie, was originally known as Gravelly Bay; it was renamed in 1833 to honor Sir John Colborne, a British war hero and the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada.
