Fodor's Expert Review Toronto's First Post Office

Old Town Government Building

Dating from 1833, this small working post office continues to use quill pens, ink pots, and sealing wax—you can use the old-fashioned equipment to send a letter for C$2. Exhibits include reproductions of letters from the 1820s and 1830s. Distinctive cancellation stamps are used on all outgoing cards and letters.
