The Street Post Offices of Toronto, 1881 to 1897

May 20th, 7-8:30pm. By Donation.

Prior to 1881 all postal service in Toronto was conducted through a single post office located on the north side of Adelaide Street east of Yonge Street. With the physical limits of the City expanding to the north and west along with the rapidly increasing population, the service capacity of the single facility was being stretched. It was decided in 1881 to open branch post offices to the north, west and east of the central office. Shortly thereafter it was further decided to increase the number of smaller post offices to better serve the public.

This presentation is the story of the evolution of these smaller offices, the forerunners of the small offices we see in drug stores around the city.
