More Post Boxes

Some of you following this blog may remember my recent Post Boxes. I thought that I had seen a blue one somewhere, but couldn’t remember which country it was in. Whilst searching through the digital shoebox for something else I came across it. Voilà! Or maybe that should be ‘Há’ as we are in Lisbon. (Hopefully Jo will be along to correct me).

Lisbon – Bairro Alto (Largo do Carmo)

There are over 800 different types of post boxes in the UK alone. Perhaps you have an unusual one to share? If you do then please post it and link to this one in the comments or via a pingback. I’d love to see it.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I knew I had, the problem was where? A fluke I found this as I was looking for something for the creepy challenge.

  1. The Beetley one is very dull, I’m afraid. I think I have seen yellow ones somewhere. Amsterdam perhaps? My memory is shaky, on post boxes.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. I believe Australia might have yellow ones, but I didn’t photograph any. It seems a lot of countries are doing away with mail boxes altogether. You have to go to the PO to post AND collect mail.

  2. Can you find things in your digital shoebox??? This series is going to make Australian post boxes look a bit ordinary – I think. I may be surprised if I start looking.

    1. You did indeed! And what beauties they are. I am so excited to see the Edward VII post box. We must have some of those here surely? Thanks Geriatrx for sharing these 🙂

  3. I could tell you were inLisbon straight away Jude. Perhaps I should take a photo of our group mail boxes in Canada. They are ‘interesting’. However I will add that Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto just made the top 5 of most livable cities in the world.

    1. That would be nice Sue. As for your cities I can only vouch for Vancouver and Toronto. Both lovely places with loads to do. Though Vancouver gets my vote as I love Vancouver Island

      1. Yes both the city of Vancouver on the mainland and Vancouver Island are gorgeous spots. A very different pace between the two I must say. We were on the island for our nephew’s wedding two weeks ago. Glorious!

    1. it’s a pretty colour. I wonder if it is for airmail letters as there are red ones which have ‘normal’ written on them. Where’s Jo when you need her?
