Tullochs co-director Jessica Reid said the plans came to them from a deceased estate and were stored in architectural plan drawers since their creation.
“It’s quite interesting on a lot of different fronts, historically interesting and aesthetically because they are beautiful plans,” she said.
The Launceston Post Office was designed by Tasmanian government architect William Waters Eldridge, with the drawings for both the Launceston Post Office and the Telegraph Office dating back to July 8, 1885.
