Time to post a letter?

Standard

Just pop out of the gate

George V or VI letter box (I’m not sure) a round-topped one, which I think is meant to be attached to a pole, not just on a pole, but perhaps it was both.  Finally made use of the ‘brickwork’ step added as extra support to the stub of wall by the gate

The post box sits at the other end of the road to the street light

In my head I’m working on a little something to fit in along the length of the walling – bits already ordered online –  but it won’t be for the next few days or so – didn’t finish the chores 😦

Once I’d done some research, the making of the box involved a lot of dashing in and out between the domestic jobs I was supposed to be doing, and around the glue and paint drying out at the various stages.  Made with cardboard and edgings in 15 mm wood strip plus painted string for the finer bits.  Worst part was working on what I’ve always taken to be a rain cover over the posting slot.  It is so small I could barely hold it to score and crease it and then, when the area was glued to take it, I couldn’t let go.  Thought I was going to lose it down the posting slot 🙂

    • Good morning. Thought about it, thought about a policeman with a bobble helmet but think I’m going with a delivery bicycle leaning up against the wall and possibly a box of deliveries or similar balancing on a post at the gate. Concerned about just how large the bike will be but otherwise I’ll work on from there. Fancy a cat stretched out on top of the post box too. How’s that sound?
