Training in Quarantine – Day 116

Warm day with a few heavy downpours of rain. Still managed to get a walk done, and realised this postbox I’ve been walking past for years, doesn’t have the “EIIR” logo on it, but has a “GVIR” logo instead.

Which I _believe_ means it’s a box erected during George VI’s reign (the EIIR stands for Elizabeth II, Regina (queen), and the GVIR stands for George VI, Rex (king)).

If so, this box was erected between 1936-1952, meaning it’s at least 68 years old.

A really interesting map of all of London’s abandoned and partly-abandoned stations. Some of which I knew about (Mill Hill East for example), others, like Highbury + Islington, which I use daily to get to work, I didn’t know had a different surface building at one point.
