Installed when Queen Victoria was alive

It’s just an ordinary post box in a wall. I almost walked past it without a second glance.

It was my husband who stopped and pointed out the V R at the top of the box.

That little postbox has been in that wall since Queen Victoria was alive.

Me: What’s extraordinary is that the general design hasn’t changed for centuries.

Him: Well why would you change it if it doesn’t need changing?

Me: That’s quite a lot of pressure to get it right the first time…

Him: Aggie, it’s a post box.

  1. Once you know the ‘code’ on the post boxes, you’ll find that everywhere you go you check them out. EIIR is probably the most common these days but I saw a very rare EVIII down near Broadstairs in Kent. And I’m living in an EVII area – these are also quite rare.
