365 #222 – History box

#222/365

If you are not from Ireland then you may not understand the title “History Box”. In Ireland all post/mail boxes are green. However there are still a huge amount of older post boxes still in use that were installed when Ireland was under British rule, the V R (either side of the crown) shows this is one such box as it refers to Victoria Regina (Queen Victoria) and this box would have been originally red like all British post boxes.
