Model of post office residence

Model
Take a closer look

Enjoy the attention to detail in this tiny replica of the Jarrahdale post office and residence as it was in the late 1930s and early 1940s? The model showcases the post office when it was owned by the Glover family. Bridget Glover was Postmistress here for many years, and lived here with her three sons. So lifelike is the model, you can almost picture the Postmistress and her sons inhabiting the rooms as they went about daily life.
