post office window - darjeeling (india)

Window of the Bazar Post Office in the Municipal Building 'L' of Darjeeling (India)

Sign says: Parcel and Registration Booking Counter, Stamps.­ No more Speed Post service.­

it seems that this particular Post Office has not changed much since the time India was under British rule.­ All the signs are in English, a language that most locals cannot understand (their native language is Hindi or Nepali).­
