Wooden Posting Box: St. Aldate’s Street by curry15 on Flickr.
Now, THAT is a mailbox.
I photographed this attractive post box a year ago and was shocked at the state it was in. I was delighted to see that it’s been restored.
I’m sure that there must be others but the fact is that they are rare. It has a large hole beneath it which originally took letters straight down to the basement. This splendid post box stands outside Oxford’s main post office which was built in 1878.
