Its Rather British Old Chap! - Red Letter Boxes

Continuing the theme of examining all things British.

Today: The Postal Service and the Red Postboxes (or Pillar Boxes)

Background and such at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pillar_box [en.wikipedia.org]

Like most of British society, they have tried modernising it, and fail most times.

The net result is another British icon that has stood the test of time.. and a welcome site when you're popping a letter in the post….

…. only to find it being delayed for a week or so. They joy of Royal Mail.

As the system is expanding. we're finding other operators are opening up, and we might have multiple mail boxes.

They'll have a tough act beating the original.
