Snail Mail

The initials GR show this is a George V letterbox placed into the wall of the Treasurers House between 1910-36. The mixture of red brick and limestone blocks are typical of walls in the centre of York which have often been patched up over the centuries with stone from St Mary's Abbey or other ecclesiastical ruins.
I wonder how much use this post box gets these days?

  1. What an interesting photo of history! Thanks for the information on it also!

  2. compared to our hulking mailboxes, this looks like a miniature!

  3. Great capture! Happy RT2.

    Mine's here.

  4. I love to see these old boxes, they are so much nicer that the modern ones. Yesterday I passed a plastic one here in Leeds, horrible.

  5. I daresay the post box doesn't see too many letters these days. Sad, of course, but e-mail has just about replaced the paper variety.

    Cheers ... visiting from RT2!
