The colours of a red victorian letterbox

The iconic nature of a letterbox is really quite interesting - the red is so distinctive, the VR in fact pretty old now (being Victorian)

I was struck when in Sierra Leone that the old letterboxes I came across were green - it was the familiar shape, but a different colour...

This little pic I took in The Avenues just off Queen's Park - small, discreet and charming. I just found myself wondering, with the loss of Post Offices how long before we start to lose postage points as well?
