[Bristol Post Office at Radcliffe and Market Streets]


Dublin Core




This building stood at the corner of Radcliffe and Market Streets. It was removed circa 1949 when a new red brick structure was built to house a bank. As the photograph indicated, it was the U.S. Post Office until a new Post Office was erected at Beaver and Prospect Streets in 1914. The upper floor was a lecture hall and part of the building housed an antique store. After the postal service moved it became a ticket office for ferry boats and the trolley.
