Olde Sandwich Towne - Windsor, Ontario

I saw in the news a while back that a post office in Windsor was scheduled for closure. The Olde Sandwich Towne post office on Sandwich Street in Windsor Ontario celebrated it's 100 year anniversary in 2005 which is fairly significant for a Canadian post office. Canada has only been a country for just shy of 146 years. The post office was closed last Friday: 26 April 2013.

The old building (the one in the postmark) is being sold and the staff have been relocated. And residents of the area will have to find another somewhat more inconvenient, less attractive and no doubt, less historic place to provide them with postal services.
