Wall-mounted cast-iron "wall box" post box, between 1939-55, with "P7T [Posts and Telegraphs]" monogram. Set in roughcast wall.
A "wall box" post box supplied by W.T. Allen and Company (fl. 1881-1955) of London representing an interesting example of mass-produced cast-iron work making a pleasing, if largely inconspicuous visual statement in a sylvan street scene with embellishments identifying the artistic potential of the composition including the Cló Gaelach or "Old Irish Lettering" defining the monogram of the Department of Posts and Telegraphs (fl. 1924-84).
