When I had a city centre flat in the 80's, my local Post Office was this one in Meadowside.
Back then, there used to be a separate queue at each window which meant you had to gamble on which queue to join while knowing that the shortest line didn't necessarily mean it was going to be the quickest. Customers complained about the unfairness of the time some queues took compared to others, so this lead to the P.O. devising the giant snake queuing system. And now everyone was slow that is!!
The outside steps would be used by unemployed youths who preferred sitting rather than standing whilst waiting on their mates inside cashing their dole cheques.
Around the millennium, this Post Office closed and the building was transformed into a nightclub.
