  DOUBLE post box!
by Jenniflower

They are all over London, down every side street and around every corner.

London's red post box :)

Synomonous with London history and culture, they have been around for a long time! This particular post box is found in Jermyn Street, just off Picadilly Street.

Jermyn Street is a very smart street, where there are many gentleman shops.. with really expensive gentleman's things! Suits with all accessories, shaving equipment, hats, you name it, it is here.

I walk down here every day, and when the business premesis of the company I work at first moved here, I thought 'oh great! I can get presents for my husband from these shops!'... then I looked a little closer into those perfect shiney windows with brass trimmings, with the stiff-looking salesmen eyeing me out from inside... and realised that I wouldn't be doing ANY gift-buying from here anytime soon! haha

Anyway, this postbox is the one that sees all my many Christmas cards and post throughout the year.. it works hard! :)
