London Postbox
"<" back one image London Postbox 
 The red post box is considered to be a British design icon. The first one was erected in Jersey in 1852. Richard Redgrave then designed a more ornate one to be used in London and other cities. In 1859 the design was improved and boxes were coloured green. Later the shape was changed to hexagonal and the colour changed to red. In 2012 selected post boxes in the home towns of Britainís winning Olympians were changed to gold to celebrate their achievements. The initials on the front change to reflect the reigning monarch of the time, currently E.R. for Elizabeth Regina.
