This building, opened in 1884, was erected to house the Post Office, Customs and Internal Revenue. Designed under the supervision of federal Chief Architect Thomas Fuller, the Truro Post Office was part of a nation-wide programme to house federal services in attractive and prominently located structures. With its steep roof, contrasts of red brick and pale stone trim, and mixture of details from various historical periods, this building is an excellent example of Victorian design, and a bold symbol of the aspirations of the new Dominion.
Cet édifice, inauguré en 1884, fut construit pour loger le bureau de poste, le service des douanes et celui du revenu. Les plans en avaient été dessinés sous la supervision de l'architecte fédéral en chef Thomas Fuller. C'était alors la pratique de regrouper les services fédéraux du pays dans des bâtiments bien situés et d'une architecture soignée. Avec son toit fortement incliné, le contraste de ses briques rouges et de ses pierres pâles et ses détails caractéristiques de diverses périodes historiques, cet immeuble offre un excellent exemple du style victorien et constitue un puissant symbole des aspirations du nouveau dominion.
