Kuching General Post Office


 This is one of my favourite places in town; the Kuching General Post Office located at the corner of Carpenter Street and Jalan Tun Haji Openg. This building of architectural significance was designed  by Denis Santry of the architectural firm of Swan and McClaren in Singapore and was completed
in 1932. It served as a police station and stables for the white rulers before assuming its role as the General Post Office for Kuching. Other significant buildings in the vicinity include the Pavilion which house the textiles museum and the Round Tower; recently dwarfed by the insensitive and unimaginative insertion of a massive commercial complex next to the Pavilion , facing the GPO.

 2012 sketch crawl - I only realised that I sketched from the same corner while looking through old sketchbooks
