The Ladner Post Office early last century

The first Ladner Post Office opened in 1875 and a post office would be located in a few different places in the community in the early years.

Here’s a photograph of the Ladner Post Office in 1910.

The photo shows Dr. Alfred de Rupe Taylor in the office with Florence Lord seated.

The interior photo also shows sorting tables and mail in individual boxes, which would be retrieved by people from outside by opening small glass inset doors.
