Dead Letters

A few months after the post office decamped for muchmorecramped quarters in Playhouse Square, work has begun on the stately old building.

It’s being transformed into a restaurant. The cuisine and name have not been announced, but it will feature 14-foot ceilings, a large bar, and outdoor dining.

A view from Bay Street shows the door to the (former) postmaster’s office is wide open.

Meanwhile, removal of planting in front of the building reveals a cornerstone. Let’s hope the renovation spares this little piece of local history.
