Pillar Boxes

Britain's reports, "The first post box was erected in the British Isles in 1852. Since then the pillar box has established itself as a much-loved part of the street furniture of our villages, towns and cities."

The site goes on to say, "The British Postal Museum and Archive, as well as being a fascinating place to visit, also produces an array of postal memorabilia. Included is a series of 25 postcards - a celebration of pillar boxes through the posters in The Royal Mail Archive. The book of postcards, published by Royal Mail, celebrates the richness of this icon of community and communication through the art of posters and a special stamp issue."
