Came across this unusual green coloured Post Box and asked myself, why is this old, old, box coloured green? Does any one know why? What is the significance of it this colour when all post boxes are usually red. It has E.R. embossed on it so, although no longer in use, was made under the reign of our Queen Elizabeth II. I captured it on an Industrial trading estate, Bradford, W Yorkshire, England, UK. It appears that this was originally yellow as some of the green paint showed signs of rust, and the edges of the rust showed weathering revealing a yellow colour (ex GPO?) underneath. I wonder when this was done, and whether it was just for show after all. I didn’t think this was allowed? Defacing Royal property and all that……
This looks to have been sprayed this colour, and is not a hand-painted job. (I checked)…..
So, What On Earth?……
