Gee Cross Post Office 1982
Another photograph by Janet Howie showing Gee Cross Post Office at the corner of Stockport Road and School Lane.
It is no longer a Post Office, falling foul of the general closure of numerous sub-offices, despite a concerted campaign against it. When I posted a photograph of the former Post Office someone asked "Is the new one near?". Well no you have to go all the way into town to the Main Post Office.
Someone else remarked "At least they kept the post box." In this shot the post box is behind the two ladies. It has since been moved round the corner into School Lane.
One thing hasn't changed - there is still a newsagents next door.
