Time stopped

I remember reading last year that after over 150 years in service, Canada Post had closed the post office in Pointe Claire Village. There was much protest and a round of petitions from area residents, as well as nods of approval from others who felt that it was underused and people were better served at the postal counter of the local drug store. But it’s still sad, isn’t it, to see this abandoned building with its clock stopped exactly at noon, its droopy, neglected flag and an “À louer” sign in the window.

    Same as the post office on Sherbrooke and Prince Albert in Westmount which was used a great deal. Carol Koffler

    Good sketch with a nicely captured subject. Such a shame to see a neglected old building like this… the feeling of neglect is heightened by the poor abandoned car with the wheel falling off. : )

    Your sketch is wonderful….I have been in the building countless times over many years.
    You probably know that the old post office in Ste. Anne de Bellevue has closed as well.
    We are losing so many of these old landmarks, and so we await to see what will be done
    with them. Changing times indeed !!!

    What kind of pen (brand) do you use in your drawings? Do they only come in black or gray.
