I collected Canadian and international postage stamps as a youth. In fact, my stamp collection won a prize at a Cub & Scout Exhibit during Baden-Powell Week in the 1960's. Going back to this place certainly gives one the impression what a working Post Office from over 100 years looks like from that time period. Beisides reliving history here, one sees how the basics of the postal system hasn't changed that much. That is, placing your correspondence in a envelope, placing a stamp on it than maiiling it to the destination that it is intented for. The methods of getting there in a timely maybe faster than over 100 years but the concept is still the same here. In my personal opinion, glad that some traditions never change here. They maybe trying to go private with the Royal Mail in the UK but haven't heard if they are going to do this in Bermuda island.

Worth visiting this little haven to get your stamps and post your cards. Sit at the old fashion table and write your cards then hand them over to the helpful assistants. It is much better posting your cards here rather than the mail boxes as they could lie there for another day or so.

A visit to the Perot Post Office is a step back in time. Appears to be exactly as it was 100 years ago. Window clerks were helpful, and had all available postage stamps in stock.

Having collected stamps as a child, this was well worth a visit: otherwise I doubt if it would be of interest ! A very nice old building- and air conditioned !
