London letter boxes

Just recently bought because I thought it a very appropriate one for me to send out. On the reverse it says it shows London red pillar boxes, but they aren't in any way restricted to London.

The first Royal Mail letter box appeared in St Helier, Jersey in1852. There are approximately 115,000 throughout the country, and it is planned that they should all be preserved as part of the UK national image.

A history of British letter boxes.
