The Taringa East Post Office was a purpose-built new post office as an extension to a 1940s redevelopment of shops by owner Dr C.N. Sinnamon. At the time, there was resistance to proposal from Taringa residents who feared loss of ‘status’ of Taringa Village Post Office. The new post office operated until 1977.
