Rare King Edward VII Postbox

I spotted this little beauty at Cambridge railway station, and just had to share it with you all. It’s located near to the exit of the station in the wall. I have to admit that my patriotic heart skipped a beat when I caught a glimpse of the distinctive, looped curls of the regal insignia belonging to Edward VII. Queen Victoria’s son only reigned for nine years, meaning that there were fewer postboxes produced in his reign (in contrast with Queen Victoria, George V, and Elizabeth II, whose lengthy reigns have produced thousands of postboxes bearing their names). Worth a look if you’re passing through Cambridge station anytime soon.
