  1. I love these old post boxes, this old E Cole and Co one is quite unusual. If it is still in use, then it is also almost unique?

  3. Yes it is actually still in use as a post box - I thought it looked unusual, didn't realise it was so rare though.

  6. Yes in those days there was probably someone waiting on the other side of the window to deliver your letter the moment you put it in the box!

  7. I used to walk past that shop every day on my way home, when I lived in St. Cross. They do very nice cakes. Thank you - you are making me feel very homesick!
