Just along the road from the Harrisons Almshouses at the junction of Raglan Road with Woodhouse Lane there is an old post box.
This rather battered post box is an Edward VII pillar box, King Edward only reigned from the death of Queen Victoria in 1901 till his own death in 1910, so this postbox dates from that period. Because of the 9 years that Edward 7th was king, this old post box is I would think quite rare these days. You can see the stylized royal cipher of the intertwined EVIIR on the door beneath the Tudor crown.

Times have changed since this post box was first put here, when Edward became King the smallest denomination postage stamp was 1/2 an old penny and there was no second class mail and there were also I think several deliveries per day!
