Photo postcard showing the Victorian Penfold pillar box near Tower Bridge In London. A unique feature to the streets of Britain, the free standing pillar box was introduced to our streets in 1853. Did you know to start with they were green? In 1874 they were painted the deep crimson red we recognise today. Named after the architect who designed it, the hexagonal Penfold pillar box came into being in 1866. Currently there are 150 originals still being used and 100 replicas.
