Post Box

May's theme photo at City Daily Photo is 'mailboxes' - I have already posted on the most interesting post box in Winchester not so long ago, so I thought I'd choose a different one. This a Wallbox style post box, it differs from a pillar box as it is not free standing. It bears the initials of the monarch at the time King George.

  1. An old mailbox in an old brick wall makes a great picture.

    The pillar boxes I posted from Jerusalem must be of the same vintage. They are not far from King George Street.

  2. It's a classic. Our post boxes are very boring and always free standing. Either yellow or blue (for local mail), and made from galvanized steel.

  10. I haven't seen many of these replaced (unlike old phone boxes). Even the new ones look pretty similar

  13. There's one in the cathedral grounds, at the start of the little road leading to the houses where the cathedral staff live - I used to love posting my lettrs in it. It felt special!
