I notice that one of those boxes says GR for George Rex while most say ER for Elizabeth Regina. It (the former) must date back to the 40's or 50's. I wonder what the oldest post box in the UK is. Do any of them date back to Victoria or older?

That is to be expected when you have a crippling inferiority complex.

He's the man, the man with the Midas touch
A spider's touch
Such a cold finger
Beckons you to enter his web of sin
But don't go in

Am I seriously in before Auric Goldfinger?

No Mr. Bond, I expect you to DIE.

Step one) Wait two months for people to stop caring.
Step two) Repaint mailboxes red
Step three) Profit by not appearing to be nitwits.

Yes. Not many left now. Most likely to be in historic/preserved districts.

It looks like the oldest one still in use dates back to George IV

Indeed. Gold is not specified for a Type 14A Government-Issue Reinforced Hardboard Pillar Box. That's right out.

// Crumbs!

Do they even have mail in the UK? I thought they called it post or something...

Of course, the underlying structure of everything in England is posh. There is no in-between with these people. You have to walk a mile to find a telephone booth, but when you find it, it is built as if the senseless dynamiting of pay phones had been a serious problem at some time in the past. And a British mailbox can presumably stop a German tank. None of them have cars, but when they do, they are three-ton hand-built beasts. The concept of stamping out a whole lot of cars is unthinkable.

That cut me deep man. It kills me to be ignored by such a thick-skinned individual. You guys are always so much fun to be around and everything.

Indeed we do. We also have the Post Office and postboxes, we're internally consistent. Mailboxes? Bad subby, we only have them on our computers.

Perhaps after they burn the speed scameras, they could paint them gold? I think it's a good compromise.
