Sweets and children’s toys in post offices …

 

Today I will tell you about how post offices in Croatia have become almost shopping malls…

 

Why? Because in addition to their post office, they also offer the sale of all kinds of toys, devices, which has and has nothing to do with

them.

 

 

I don’t know if it’s the same in other countries.

 

But if you come to us, don’t be surprised if the counter clerk, in addition to the post office, persuades you to buy some sweets or a device

along the way…

Children’s games…

 

My building is close to the main post office.

As children, we played on their reels with coiled telephone cables…

 

It was from thin wires to thick cables…

 

We made slingshots out of them and shot at each other. Children, as children, we didn’t think we could hit someone in the eye…

 

As children, it was interesting for us to put letters in external mailboxes, always looking back, that they would not fall through the

bottom…

 

We also watched post office employees empty mailboxes…

The functionality of post offices…

 

In addition to good functionality, it is necessary to architecturally arrange the interior and exterior.

 

From the lobby of the counter to the counter, once telephone booths, internal communication, and office…

 

 

Postmen had small delivery vehicles, motorcycles, and bicycles… They also had internal vehicles with package trailers.

 

And the facade of the main post office has been decorated, and an access ramp for people has been added reduced mobility…

 

 

All the vehicles were orange. The official uniform was paired with paint. As well as their visual identity.

Everyone is waiting for the postman…

 

At one time, postmen brought money to retirees, who were eagerly waiting for them.

 

Lovers were waiting for love letters from their partners… parents from children, children from parents…

 

 

But postmen also bring court decisions, fines, warnings, so then no one likes them… You stop breathe when you pick up such a shipment…

 

Today, those who deliver packages are the worst… Some come without a phone announcement….

 

 

Well, we can’t wait all day for the delivery guy to show up.

 

I can’t help but remember one postman, a wonderful man… Unfortunately, he is no more…

 

 

He took his life, because of family problems…

Exterior equipment of post offices

 

Of the old telephone booths, of which, due to the advent of the mobile phone, they remained only useless boxes or carriers, to external

 

mailboxes for consignments, which are still in operation…

 

 

I will show the above architecture photography examples

 

All this equipment had to be architecturally drawn and planned for urban areas.

 

 

I remember as a child, that whenever there was no electricity, I heard the operation of a device

 

We learned that it was an electricity generator, which supplied the post office

 

 

The post office, in addition to the railway station, also had a warehouse for packages, as well as a special yard for accommodating

manipulative vehicles.

Everything, like a flea market…

 

It hasn’t been anywhere before, except in grocery stores and newsstands magazine.

Now at the post office, you can buy anything and everything except bread and milk…

 

How and why?

 

I believe this is the result of a reduction in their regular services, due to privatization and progress technologies (mobile phones, email,…).

 

No wonder, when in newsstands and magazines, at gas stations,…. You can pay the bills of home utilities, as in post offices

 

Everyone does everything …

 

And, something has to be done and something has to be lived on…
