morden-po

A two-storey red brick building constructed in 1913-15 designed by the Chief Architect’s Office in Ottawa. With its lofty clock tower rising above many of the surrounding commercial and institutional buildings. The building displays the standardized elements and massing then used by government architects to establish a consistent identity for federal buildings across Canada. As with others of its type, the Morden facility housed a number of functions, including the post office on the main floor and customs and inland revenue offices on the second.
