DescriptionThanks to Paul (LBSG) for letting me know about this old gem. A decommissioned VR pillar box relocated to the south-east corner of Mowbray Gardens, Sunderland, SR1. The plate says: This post-box once stood on the site of the old Royal Infirmary in Durham Road, Sunderland. It was manufactured by Handyside & Co of Derbyshire circa 1887. It has been kindly donated to the City of Sunderland by the Royal Mail. July 2001 When I found, it was buried up to the neck, so I will admit I flattened a few bushes around it to get this photo, however I have no doubt they've already sprung back. I've already been advised to carry a screwdriver, perhaps I should consider pruning shears as well?
