Re: Re: Post boxes
Yes I believe there’s a George V box or two in Dundalk also – will check it out.
In Dublin they’re certainly pretty rare. I imagine it’s because the Post Office invested heavily in post offices and boxes in a major national upgrading project (presumably via OPW) around 1900-1910, so George’s later reign lost out in the insignia department.
A nice later box here at the junction of Lower Mount Street (all attendant clutter had to be cropped out :rolleyes: )
Also the late Victorian box as recently featured on Dartmouth Square South:
Agreed about the lovely Victorian boxes, often forgotton about. The rounded pillar box is a comparitively recent innovation.
…though according to An Post the Penfold’s weren’t great in the practicality department.
