Back in the day I can remember that the last couple of weeks leading up to Christmas the Post Office used to hire students to help out with deliveries. Some days we would get at least a dozen cards posted to us. My Darling Mum was under the strictest orders not to open any if they arrived while I was at school - Christmas Card Opening was my duty! Also there was a delivery on Sunday. Sadly nowadays with rising costs less people post Christmas Cards, which I think is a shame as it was a real treat to hear lots of them landing on the doormat.
So, I thought today in memory of the past glories of the Post Office I would use this photo I took of a Victorian post box (this is situated locally to me). And no, I am not a child of Victorian times, but of the 1960s :)
