Elizabethan postbox on Carlton Crescent

Three weeks ago I showed you a Victorian Postbox on Little Underbank.

By way of contrast, this is an Elizabethan postbox on the corner of Carlton Crescent and Newbridge Lane.

A contribution to Ruby Tuesday and Our World Tuesday.


  1. Great shot ~ Love the mailbox for RTT ~ thanks ^_^

  2. I don't think we identify that way anymore. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  3. Another lovely historical find! It's good to know they are still around.

  4. I just had to check out the Victoria mailbox. Is it typical for them to be flat inserts in a building while the Elizabethan mailbox is a stand alone unit?

    1. There are various kinds of postboxes from the free-standing ones (including some doubles) to flat inserts to small ones like this one. All boxes carry the moniker of the monarch who was reigning when the box was installed so you'll find most types for all the different monarchs.
