The Post Office at Westland Row was located beneath the railway bridge. 

Though the Post Office has since been replaced by a ticket office, it has remained in the forefront of the minds of many as it features in James Joyce's Ulysses as the location where Leopold Bloom collects a love letter under the false name, Henry Flower. 

The now vanished Post Office is an important stop on any Joycean walking tour of Dublin, as from this point Bloom's footsteps follow a route in the shape of a question mark which has been a talking point for scholars for many years.
