Post Office Misery (330°)

Post Office Misery (330°)
This is the location and the building of the former Post Office Hamburg 6. All what's left are a stamp dispenser and two mailboxes (for whatever reason). A bank (what else?) is residing in the building now. When I was a kid I bought my stamps here. (See PiP, this is what they looked like back then. The 50 in mint condition is worth a little fortune today)

TSC: Sept. 18th, 2016. Mailbox
Since I am currently very limited for personal reasons I have uploaded an archive shot to the TSC group, I hope this will be accepted as an exception. Feel free to remove it if not.

I agree with autofantasia, this was well worth going to the archives for, and I liked reading your memories about the old post office. Those mailboxes reflect the "has been" atmosphere of the place.

... kommt mir (leider) sehr bekannt vor.
Hier (speziell im "Szenekiez" Friedrichshain) gibt's Parkautomaten, die derart mit Tags und Aufklebern verunstaltet sind, daß Auswärtige sie nicht erkennen, und selbst Einheimische noch Probleme haben den jeweiligen Geldeinwurfschlitz zu finden.

I take back all the critical comments I have made about the Royal Mail. Your emotive presentation about the deterioration of the Deutsche Post is both shocking and sad.
As opposed to removing this image, just the opposite should occur and you should be credited for highlighting concern of the people! Well done, Lutz!
Congrats on Explore!!!

Da waren ja echte Künstler am Werk, Lutz;-). Manche wissen vielleicht schon gar nicht mehr, was man da hinein wirft. Verschiedentlich wurden sie bei uns schon angezündet, mal kamen bei der Leerung Umschläge zusammen mit Currywurst und Pommes raus.

A nicely composed street scene. It is more likely that the post office would now be a pub/restaurant. over here. High street banks are also slowly disappearing.

Great street shot. And a somehow strange combination of yellow and a non-descript kind of grey.

Stamps used to be interesting. These days only boring stamps are being used, interesting stamps are only sold online
