No knitted topper, and for the rest also not looking too good. But still in operation somewhere in Antwerp

November box - there is a somewhat bizarre craze for knitting 'toppers' for post boxes, often themed. This one is for Remembrance Day.

A senior moment caused me to post this in the telephone box thread, when it ought to live here. So forgive a double post of this double box in the centre of Market Deeping:

Edward VII box at Clonmel station, Ireland.


Ireland's oldest post box and still in daily use after 160 years. Not many of this design were made as a design fault was soon apparent. The flap (now missing) over the upward facing opening wasn't sufficiently watertight to stop rain ingress, its current location at Kent Station in Cork is under cover.

Antique mailbox at the railway station in Haaksbergen (the living steamtrain museum MBS)



But I found the sign above it even more interesting

The left column showed "railway time" while the right column showed the corrosponding "local time". In those days the time wasn't standardised yet across the country, let alone time zones as we know today. Every town had their own time, usually based on 12:00 when the sun was at it's highest point. Obviously running railways on time with a different time at every place they came through was not possible so they were one of the first organisations which standardised the time across their network. So at this place "railway time" apparently was 20 minutes earlier than local time.

The only one that I've heard of is a parcel box on the Isle of Man (Douglas). This was a PR stunt by the IOM authorities - the ciphers on these boxes are just vinyl patches.
