Until the invention of the internet in the 1990s, you had to rely on the post office for your banking and postal affairs. The current Magna Plaza fulfilled this function between 1895 and 1990 for generations of Amsterdammers.
Nowadays, your smartphone is enough to handle many banking and postal matters, but not so long ago you really had to leave your house for that. To the post office. And with a bit of bad luck it was busy there and you had to wait a long time. The Amsterdammer of yesteryear spent a lot of time in the post office. There were several small post offices in the city, but the so-called main post office was behind the Palace on Dam Square, at Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 182. We know this building today as the Magna Plaza shopping centre.
