Correo Central (Post Office), Buenos Aires, Argentina about 1917

The Buenos Aires Central Post Office (native name: “Palacio de Correos y Telecomunicaciones” or most commonly, “Correo Central”) building, now the Néstor Kirchner Cultural Centre, was the seat of the Correo Argentino (Argentine Post Office Department) until 2005. It is located in the San Nicolás, Buenos Aires neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The building was designed in the Neoclassical Beaux-Arts style and with Second Empire style elements by French architect Norbert Maillart. Construction started in 1899, and after several long pauses and changes to Maillart’s original design, was finally opened in 1928. (from Wikipedia)
