New Post Office, Hanley - 1906
A listed building


The Post Office was built with Hollington stone from the Waterloo Stone Quarries at Alton at a cost of about 13,000. Designed by John Rutherford and opened on October 18th 1906. The main feature is the triangular pediment supported by Ionic columns and pilasters. 

On the 1898 OS map the location of the Post Office is open space and in previous years the site was a regular venue for Batty's Circus.

Note the tram lines which ran up Lichfield Street across Tontine Square and along Tontine Street as far as the junction with Percy Street
