A faded, King George-era postbox set into a stone wall in England.

(This was originally going to be a post for the "Wall" prompt, but I procrastinated ;-)

I love the faded tones and the way that nature is pushing its way back out through the stone. I do like the fact that we still have George V/VI and even in some cases Victorian postboxes around the place.
Yes, I liked the tiny ferns especially!

These old postboxes are amazing. I do admit to British postbox envy ;-) I wish we had these in Canada, instead of our brutally functional Big Standing Mailboxes.
What a nice picture. I have a similar one on file somewhere - I must look for it so we can compare!
I would love to see your picture, and I hope you 'post' it!

...I'll see myself out.
This is such a lovely, fitting picture!
Thank you!
That's perfect. :)
Thanks very much! It was the first thing that came to my mind.
You stole my initial idea!!

I love the icon, btw! May I snag (with credit, of course)

Well I hope you do share your idea here, I would love to see your interpretation of it.

And the Groucho icon? By all means, please be my guest! (The shot is from the "Freedonia conference" in Duck Soup BTW, although I did Photoshop out a little extraneous noise.)
Thank you - I love the Marx Brothers, and Duck Soup is probably my favourite film.
Mine too!

By the way I did a sloppy Google and found 4 Marx Brothers icons here on LJ (nos. 61-64) - looks like the usual "if you take, please credit" arrangement:

Good response. I haven't seen one of those for years. In the city the post boxes tend to be the pillar-box type. That brings back memories of village living.
*nods* This post box was found in an outlying corner of the town of Ilfracombe - not actually a village, but it was a fashionable seaside-holiday destination during Victorian/Edwardian times, so it probably has any number of these older boxes.

I quite like the pillar-box type too, though!
