Historic postboxes

As regular readers will have noticed, I do enjoy a nice bit of postal heritage. It's even better when combined with other forms of heritage. These well-located postboxes are in Cambridge - note the water flowing in an open conduit alongside the Trumpington Street box; this was part of the original water supply to the town centre.

These are excellent photos!
Sorry to be a nitpicker, but it's Queens' [plural] College - The Queen's [singular] College is in Oxford.

Thank you - now corrected. I would say in my defence that I'm much more familiar with Queen's College Oxford, but with the sign right there in the photo it isn't much of an excuse!

Fabulous post. I do love a bit of postal hertiage myself.
