In November 1912, ornate new General Post Offices designed by Government Architect John Campbell were opened in Auckland (main image, Queen St) and Wellington (Featherston St). Each cost about £100,000, equivalent to more than $15 million in today's money. Wellington’s GPO was demolished in the 1970s, while Auckland’s was incorporated into the new Britomart transport centre in 2006.
