    Fluted Pillar Box

    by Galahad Updated Mar 29, 2005

    The first roadside post boxes in the UK were brought into use in 1852. Prior to 1874 most boxes were dark green. It was only after this date that red became standard. There are a number of unusual and rare post boxes still in use in England including fluted column pillar-boxes, octagonal boxes with vertical openings, crown-topped boxes in Liverpool and hexagonal 'Penfold' boxes. Have a look at Worcester for another type of Victorian pillar box. In the background to the photo are the Malvern Hills.
