Postbox Edenderry

Another postbox in a random area (for more click here), this is another one in use and I have proof.
This one is another dating back to British rule, this from King Georges rule.
This still has the original key that offers the reward for the sum of 2 Shillins and 6 Pence if handed into the Police.
And from the Freestate the same reward when handed into the Gárda (Irish for police)
And the Postman opens it!

You know I'm a sucker for these old post boxes - the keys, the Free State story historically fascinating as well as the photos being aesthetically pleasing! Thanks Paz!

Its amusing, like Queens docks in the peoples republic of Cork. Where apparently I missed rhw tribute to an IRA soldier from 1916 accross the road
