TQ3182 : London: new postbox on Rosebery Avenue

London: new postbox on Rosebery Avenue
London: new postbox on Rosebery Avenue
This postbox has been positioned here in the last twelve months, outside TQ3182 : London: Mount Pleasant Mail Centre. The sorting office is due to undergo considerable development work shortly, which will involve the temporary relocation of the post office branch to a shop across Farringdon Road. This is therefore perhaps a future replacement for postbox № EC1 100, which is currently set within the wall of the building - see TQ3182 : London: postbox № EC1 100, Rosebery Avenue.

The box is not yet operational; its slots are closed by way of a metal barrier affixed to the inside.

Update: Indeed, Julian Osley's photo of Mount Pleasant Post Office in January 2014 TQ3182 : Mount Pleasant Post Office shows the wall postboxes sealed up with tape - so my theory above has proven to be correct.
