Code: ADELPO

"General Post and Telegraph Office, Adelaide , South Australia"

The GPO was crowned what we may describe as a “flag pole” however in a city built 6 miles from its Port it was the end messenger of successive like signalling posts from Port Adelaide to inform the colonists what ships were docked to warrant the journey from the city! Also note the cattle gates to prevent droving heards entering the Square and partaking of the fresh grass.
