Oslo (3)

As well as spending a great deal of time enjoying and exploring the different floors of the new Munch Museum (you will have to await my full verdict for the December issue of the Burlington Magazine), I also explored more of the old town.

I walked past what I think is the Cental Post Office building in Tollbugata, but can’t find much about its history other than the fact that construction began in 1906, was completed in 1924 and it ceased to be a post office in 2004:-

The Magistrat Gaarden:-

What seem to be barracks:-
