This imposing, three-storey building situated off the south side of Canute Road opposite Queen’s Park was built in c.1902 as the main post office and telegraph office for Southampton docks. It was opened c.1905. Mail was sorted here before being loaded on to the great passenger liners. The building, which is now Grade II listed, was used by British Telecom for a time and has since been converted into apartments.
