Market post


This Victorian postbox is in a particularly convenient location, Oxford's Covered Market. That makes it handy not only for shopping, but also for staying out of the cold and rain!

Hello:
Like the early telephone boxes which appear to us to be disappearing from our streets, the Victorian letter boxes are, indeed, an increasingly rare sight. How convenient it is sheltered!

I find there is something very satisfying about the design of the traditional pillarbox, including the solid clunk/clang the door makes when the postman slams it shut.

I love the old postboxes too - let's hope they survive any privatisation!
