Islington Has Got A Smart New Post Office

When I came here in 2010, Islington had two Post Offices on Upper Street; an old traditional one by St. Mary’s Church and a rather dodgy structure on the forecourt of Highbury and Islington station.

Both are now gone and a smart new one has opened in a double-fronted shop opposite the Town Hall.

Peering through the window, it would appear to have all the latest automatic machines to send letters and parcels to Oblivion and everywhere else. According to Livy, Oblivion is defined as the Limia River in Spain.

  1. Lets hope that the automatic machines in your new Post Office are a little more useful than the ones in mine.

    Having queued up to send a recorded delivery letter that the Post Office proudly boasted was possible on the sign above the machine, after completing the transaction with said machine I then had to queue up all over again to get a human to issue me with the receipt and tracking number! What is the point!

    Are Post Offices put on this earth to try us? In my case they succeed every time!
