Inside the Museum — Toronto’s First Post Office
Inside the Museums views Toronto’s heritage museums for the first time as a single community — linked by events, personalities, and function. In this special excerpt we visit Toronto’s first post office at 260 Adelaide Street East, a handsome red-brick building still flying the Union Jack, and built in 1834. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour of the house, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
