真係估唔到,原來真係有植物自己生咗喺層油下面!

郵政署回覆 (28/12/2016):

Dear Mr Sin,

Thank you for your email of 15 December 2016 regarding the Street Posting Box (SPB) Number 463 located at Savanna Garden / Tai Po Kau, Tai Po Road, Tai Po.

Please be advised that we have a programme to repaint our SPBs on a regular basis in order to ensure that they are maintained in a proper condition. Under the programme, it covers any ad-hoc repainting need upon reporting of the unsatisfactory condition of the SPB after our regular inspection conducted at site. In general, every SPB will be repainted in about every 3 years. According to our records, SPB 463 was last re-painted in February 2015.

Our site inspection at SPB 463 revealed that some vine-like plant strived to grow underneath the white paint of the surface of the concrete wall enclosing the SPB. We have checked that the inner compartment of the SPB 463 is intact and in good condition. We have thus carried out the plant removal work and repainted the SPB 463 to improve the outlook of the box and the surrounding concrete wall. (photos are attached for your information)

Thank you again for your information. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

regards, Sonia ”

Note: There seems to be some kind of vines (living or dead?) underneath the paint! 油漆下似有爬藤植物(不知是生或死的);已通知郵政署。

Letter to HK Post regarding the vines:

“Dear Ms So,

My team is conducting our annual checkup of the vintage postboxes. In our visit to Postbox 463 at Savanna Garden / Tai Po Kau, Tai Po Road, Tai Po, we notice underneath the paint there seems to be trapped some vine that had climbed onto the structure in which the postbox is embedded. (I attach the photos for your reference; in case they are too large for your email account, they could also be found at https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxbXpNwnjON2dVlmZ3B3bmRCajA).

We also have visited the box in July of this year. When we compared the photos of the box in July with the current ones, we noticed two things: new paint seems to have been applied in the intermediate period, and no vine was noticeable under the paint in July.

We therefore suspect the vine was developed between July and whenever the new paint was applied and somehow the people responsible for painting the box failed to remove the vine. If that is the case, we believe this reflects badly on the craftsmanship of the party responsible for the painting.

If however no new paint had been applied in the intermediate period, then it would mean the vine somehow found a way to grow on the postbox underneath the paint. This would seem to have more worrying implication on the structure of the postbox and therefore might warrant some maintenance.

Yours sincerely,

Sin Wai Man”

搜索隊回報 – 郵筒110

*據本搜索隊與British Postal Museum and Archive 及Letter Box Study Group查證(見 1 & 2),香港現仍服役的七個佐治五世、一個佐治六世、及一個依利沙伯二世(元朗廈村)郵筒的設計及皇室徽號,均與英國本土或其屬地及前殖民地的同年代郵筒有別,為世界獨有。We have been in correspondence with the British Postal Museum and Archive and the authoritative Letter Box Study Group and they confirmed that the royal cyphers on and designs of our seven KGV, one KGVI and one ERII at Ha Tsuen, Yuen Long are different from their counterparts in UK or other British colonies. These boxes are Hong Kong’s unique contribution to world postal and postbox history.

Dear Ms So,

We had our annual checkup for all the vintage postboxes and we are very glad to note most boxes are in good conditions. However, we also find the conditions of the following two boxes wanting and hope the Post Office would consider carrying out some maintenance on them:
  1. No.215 (Mui Wo Ferry Pier, Lantau Island https://goo.gl/QEYifu): rust near where the main body and the base connect.
  2. No.131 (Boundary Street / La Salle Road, Kowloon Tong https://goo.gl/kLnger): rust near where the main body and the base connect.
I would be grateful if you would keep me posted of any updates on these two boxes.
Best regards,
Sin Wai Man
