Another Postbox Map

Wow, just noticed someone else has also created a postbox map on Google Earth. http://maps.google.com.hk/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=108389780906398562413.00046d9056ec57f624d5c&t=k&z=11

Ours was first created on 22/6/2009 and his was 30/6/2009, so probably we had inspired him. His work was good and original (all pictures different from ours) and he also maintained three other very interesting maps, a like-minded person I believe.

1. 歷任香港總督揭幕牌匾 http://maps.google.com.hk/maps/ms?hl=zh-TW&gl=hk&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=108389780906398562413.00046e4191dfd58e22fd0&ll=22.406585,114.101257&spn=0.45198,0.891953&t=k&z=11

2. 舊式路牌 http://maps.google.com.hk/maps/ms?hl=zh-TW&gl=hk&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=108389780906398562413.000453fd4e26e6248a46b&ll=22.38119,114.071045&spn=0.452063,0.891953&t=k&z=11

3. 特色/重型消防栓 http://maps.google.com.hk/maps/ms?hl=zh-TW&gl=hk&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=108389780906398562413.0004645507c30f10a8f62&t=k&z=13
(“此類街井提供大量的水源以備救火之用,多見於九龍區

,亦有小量設於港島區。當飛機由北角向南往啟德機場降落時,會掠過九龍市區上空部份地帶(如深水埗、九龍塘等區),該地帶通常稱為飛行漏斗。在這漏斗範圍下,是有可能發生飛機失事而需要重型街井供水來灌救。”)

I’ve now updated our list of 有待查證的香港舊郵筒 and there are 24 of them – most surprising of all is there’s one in Yau Yat Chuen!!! Although some of these 24 are already covered by this other map, I think visiting and recording them is still immense fun, so let’s keep searching! http://hksearch.weebly.com/26377244532659735657303403932128207332903710931570.html
