Post and Post Boxes (1850s to Today)


These pages are just being started, so there may be (at the moment) only a few of many items about the Postal Service, Such as GPO Motorcycles, Cars, Vans and Lorries, but first I will concentrate on making illustrations of the Various UK (GPO) Post-Boxes. However I hope to add to these over time and make is as comprehensive as my
Royal Signals Vehicles Pages and CATS* Vehicles Pages...

* CATS = Coaches, Automobiles, Trucks and Steam-engines and is a mix of British and American terms, but spells the word CATS.

So now on to my GPO Drawings... Drawings? I hear you say!

Yes Drawings, then I want them all to be at the same angle, and to highlight the details I think best reflect the memories of these I have.

I know some experts will criticise that the drawings are not quite right, then I have had "Rivet counters" tell me what they do and do not like (or insist is wrong) with my military drawings, especially when I have missed a hinge, or some other minor detail.

So for the experts who want to tell me the number of Hinges on a door, width of the letter-slot, etc., of the Pillar-Boxes are wrong, I simply claim Artistic Licence and refer you to instead go elsewhere for perfection, such as the real thing in museums and collections.

If you want to see how I make my drawings, look at the Artwork pages Link on the list on the Left side of this page and then in that click on the How-2 pages...

I hope you enjoy, or at least find the site Interesting.

Due to the ever increasing size and complexity, the pages have been moved around a lot from Server to Server, and also the Layout and interlinking changed. This is the new 2015 Layout and will use two digit numbers to determine the sub-sections.

Previous e-mail contact tools I have used have proven unreliable, with only some of the contact forms entered received, or e-mails received.

For this reason I have now changed to throw-away e-mail addresses, and the actual current address can be found on the "Contact Petra” page

If you wish to contact me or make comments, etc., or would like to use the pictures on this site for your own home-page or any other use, then please use the "Contact Petra” page by Clicking this link.

To save you having to scroll back up to the top of the page to select the next one, etc., I have made a typical British roundabout sign. Clicking on the middle will take you to the main start page where you can select which site is of interest to you. Clicking on the left side will take you back to the previous page in this series or to the previous website (Royal Signals) accordingly. Clicking on the right side will take you to the next page in this series.
