Rissik Street Post Office

R530.00R1,500.00

The Rissik Street Post Office was built in 1897 during the time of South Africa’s ex president, Paul Kruger. Built and designed by Kruger’s ‘choice architect’ Sytze Wierda, the building was at one time the tallest building in Johannesburg. The Rissik Street Post Office became a national monument in 1978, and it remained in operation until 1996, when the South African Post Office vacated the building. The monument was tragically gutted by a fire in 2009 with the restoration process starting 7 years later in 2016. One of the buildings main features being the ‘Coronation Clock’, that dominates its front facade, was designed and built by the clockmaster Lou Collins. The official starting of the clock took place punctually one second before noon on Saturday December 31 1904.
