Poste puis gendarmerie

Credits

En 1904, la poste de Thiers est fraîchement construite. Située sur une ancienne gendarmerie, elle remplace en partie des anciens locaux où étaient logés des policiers. Aujourd'hui redevenu un lieu dédié à une force armée chargée des missions de police, l'inscription « Postes Télégraphes Téléphones », surmontée d'une représentation du blason de Thiers sont encore visibles sur la façade principale du bâtiment donnant sur la place.


Post office then gendarmerie (Police contryside or Maréchaussée)

In 1904, the post office of Thiers was freshly built. Located on a former gendarmerie, it replaced part of the former premises where police officers were housed. Nowadays, it has become a place dedicated to an armed force in charge of police missions. The inscription "Postes Télégraphes Téléphones", topped by a representation of the coat of arms of Thiers, can still be seen on the main facade of the building overlooking the square.
