Here’s a little something spotted in leafy Cheltenham just this last weekend. There at the top of the local park on the street is a beautiful Victorian postbox. Cast iron, no doubt, and built to last as it has. Still in regular use as you can see by the white notice. vic post1vicpost

Given that Victoria died in 1901, this gem is at least 114 years old. In the days when it was installed it was not uncommon to write a letter locally in the morning and have it delivered in the afternoon. We here in the UK are apt to take these sort of antique artefacts for granted, but think what a lot of history must have passed through this box. I think it’s wonderful.

The joy of blogging. Been working on a series of like this post cartoons and this is one of them. Like it if you like! This is a rough and the final one will be done soon, hopefully, the last one of my posts with the long haired bishop hit the editing spike!
