The Old Ponsonby Post Office

The Old Ponsonby Post Office

The Three Lamps corner, where Ponsonby Road, College Hill Road, St Mary’s Bay Road and Jervois Road meet, is dominated by this beautifully restored building, once the Ponsonby Post Office. Built in 1912, restored and transformed into a Belgian Beer CafĂ© in 2005, called The Ponsonby. Especially impressive on a sky blue canvas.

Edit 16/03/2013: This building is being marketed for sale. The New Zealand Herald has an interesting writeup about its history, including a murder story, no less.

Edit July 2013: this is now Three Lamps Bar and Eatery: http://www.threelamps.co.nz/
