The old Post Office presently houses the Wingham and District Museum and a day-care centre.

"The snowbanks along the mainstreet got to be so big that an archway was cut in one of them, between the street and the sidewalk, in front of the post office. A picture was taken of this and published in the Jubilee Herald-Advance, so that people could cut it out and send it to relatives and acquaintances living in less heroic climates, in England or Australia or Toronto. The red-brick clocktower of the post office was sticking up above the snow and the two women were standing in the archway, to show it was no trick." 
(p. 140, Lives of Girls and Women)

 

"I could not see the time on the blurry moon of the post-office clock."
(p. 189, Lives of Girls and Women)
