    No Gedrick, there,s nothing funny going on at all. But it is good to get the days post before lunch, not that I have any mind you, with a gut like mine you have to cut something out.

    I've said this on another thread, but the "Special" postbox at the Albert Dock was originally at Shiel Road.
    It was also at the Garden Festival in 1984.

    I vote for Chippie in shorts right where the Queen's head is.
    (I mean on a postage stamp!).

    I've been looking for an Edward VIII box to complete my set. Thought there must be one in Liverpool. I think there's less than 20 countrywide.

    I always regret not getting a photo of the standard box that was in Wavertree. Vandals dropped fireworks in it...
    EDIT...just got further through thread and someone put a photo of it...excellent

    Someone was asking about blue Victorians, here's one I found the other week. It is on the former Primitive Methodist Chapel in Old Park, Telford. Note the next collection!

    This is a really great thread, but a question are there any yellow topped Post boxes that have a Sunday collection , or have all Sunday collections stopped?

    It is indeed in Oxton; Balls Rd., outside the Williamson Art Gallery.

    Attached is one from Ashville Rd., which runs through Birkenhead Park. It's a hexagonal Penfold, Victorian.
