Going Postal

Excuse the naff photo (sneaked shot) but this is a real gem. The Postal Archives - which look fascinating in their breadth and depth - have had to move from their own huge area in the Mount Pleasant building to what used to be the boiler house. They also have a very small room set up as a museum. There are only two cases, but they are packed with fascinating stuff, from the days that post went by horse & coach, through the wars, the only full sheet of Penny Blacks and a lot (ok, not so much in quantity) more. It won't take you long, you will have to sign in and deal with the pleased surprise of the staff, but you will be pleased that you visited . Plus, its also one of those rare places that Diamond Geezer hasn't visited, apparently. (There is also a postal section in the London Museum, too) (Oh, and "Going Postal" apart from being a Terry Pratchett book is an expression)
