I took this photo of the
pillar box, situated in Edinburgh Road, South Queensferry, on
December 17, 2010.
It is a 'Penfold' box,
a style that was common in the 19th century. I assume that
this is a reproduction model. Several reproductions have been
installed in recent years at popular tourist sites.
The Forth Bridge
opened in 1890. It can be seen in the background.
