Theme Day - Passageway
The colonnade of the old GPO in Martin Place - above, looking east - below, looking west
Designed by James Barnett and constructed between 1886 and 1891, the GPO was sold by the Commonwealth Government to private interests in 1997. It was reopened in 1999 as a mixed retail building with a Westin Hotel occupying the upper storeys.
