Deliver

Getting in fast with the easy one for Brits! One of our distinctive red post boxes. This one is a little battered and off-vertical, and no wonder. A little googling on post-box-lover sites (there are many), suggests this is a George V box, dating from 1910-36. (In case you're wondering, the GR for George VI boxes is in much twiddlier lettering). I know plenty left over from Queen Victoria, though not on my way to work, sadly. They are some of the hardest-wearing, most-used pieces of street furniture I know.
