Aye, it didn't get the best of paint jobs, it went from the standard red to gold overnight.

What they made of? Cast iron? I like the guy in the background. A real happy looking fellow.

Could well be, but I'm no expert, I failed my PhD in postboxes.

No I actually spoke to him after this shot, defiantly Scottish, he wondered what was going on with this gold postbox business.

Looking at it again, It looks like something from Dr Who! Killer alien post boxes maybe?

Aye, with the cut backs in services here, it's probably only emptied once a moth, hence the size.

No I think it's actually, one for first class mail the other for second class.

In Canada we pay 50 cents for a stamp.....this cost breaks down this way...40 cents for delivery...10 cents for storage.

Our Postman is Santa. Times are so tough, he had to get a job with the Post Office to make ends meet!

All joking aside our postal system here is absolutely brilliant, both fast and still relatively cheap.
