Edward VIII postbox, Belfast
The only remaining Edward VIII pillar box in Northern Ireland. Now withdrawn from service it remains on display in the foyer of Tomb Street Sorting Office in Belfast J3474 : Sorting office, Tomb Street, Belfast. The box was formerly located on the Upper Lisburn Road in the city close to the junction with Ormonde Park (now replaced by a George V box I think - see J2969 : Pillar box, Finaghy, Belfast) - a photograph available at LinkExternal link shows the box (complete with plate to reduce the aperture as a deterent to parcel bombers) in its original location. See also J3474 : Edward VIII postbox, Belfast for a close up view of the notice plate.
(Thanks to Royal Mail for letting me take the picture).
