    Default Postboxes

    Post your Liverpool postboxes here. Sounds a bit trainspotterish, but I'm fascinated with them. You can guess

    their age by the ubiquitous "ER" and "GR" insignias on the front of them.

    My first pic is the oldest postbox in Liverpool. It used to be located on

    Sheil Rd, but can now be found in the grounds of the Royal Mail building near Limey. The second one is a Victorian postbox in Wood

    St.

    Don't know if it's still there but

    there was a Victorian one in Arundel Avenue, near Sydenham Avenue.

    The country's only octagonal post box was at the corner of Mill St and Northumberland St. It was there until the 1970s and taken away as it

    was so unique. I saw a photo of it on the net somewhere.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
