Bombed Post Office
Location Details
Address: Kings Cross, East End, London, England, United Kingdom
Coordinates: E,1 - 9 (NE)
Type: Ruin


Closed since the Blitz. This one time post office used to be a bank and it shows. The floors are old marble, worn smooth and kept nice and waxed by the custodial staff. A big blocky counter has been placed conspicuously in the middle of the room to provide customers with a place to write and work with packages. The walls, where the big floor to ceiling windows allow it, have been lined with shelves full of packaging supplies, envelopes, boxes, bags, and other things people might need to be able to send out their mail. Towards the back of the room the old banks cashier cages have been left intact, ornate metal grills going from the top of the wood and marble counter to the ceiling, leaving little arched windows for the customers to interact with the post office clerks. A hole in the ceiling matches straight through the floors until there's a crater in the marble floor direct center in the building. Some tarps and pieces of scrap wood do their best to fill the holes that the undetonated bomb that's been since removed came in uninvited.
