搜索隊回報 – 郵筒 91

*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.

Correspondence with HK Post on the small defect

16/4/2012

Dear Ms Chung,

I thought I shared with you one observation of mine on the two KGV boxes when I paid them a visit today. I think the overall repainting was well done. However, minor paint peel-off is already noticeable on a different spot on each box (please see attached pictures). I do not want to sound nitpicky but given the paint job was newly finished, this perhaps reflects badly on the workmanship of the contractor engaged.

Best regards,
Sin Wai Man

Dear Mr. Sin,

Thanks very much for sharing with me your observation on the workmanship of
the two boxes. Surely we will follow up with the contractor on the defects.

Have a nice day!

Mary

Good News! 任務完成!
我們年檢時發現非常殘破的兩個佐治五世(1910 – 1936)香港現役最古老郵筒,郵政署通知終於重新漆油!(另外一個是位於長洲的依利沙伯二世郵筒。)

Letter dated 5/4/2012 from HK Post:

“Dear Mr. Sin,

Please be informed that the repainting of Street Posting Box no. 66 at
Cheung Chau, no. 91 at Hong Lee Road and no. 235 at Hoi Phong Road had been
completed. We are aware of the unfavourable environment surrounding the
existing location of the one at Hoi Phong Road. We are exploring the
possibility of relocating this box is there is suitable location. Attached
please find the relevant photos for your reference.

With best regards,
Mary”

Major and pleasant surprise

Following my yesterday’s (2/5/2011) email to the relevant authorities, I, rather unexpectedly, received a really swift reply from Hongkong Post informing the old postbox is indeed only temporarily removed due to road work by the Highways Department.

I think that’s really good news and it also seems to show Hongkong Post is making a conscientious effort in retaining the old boxes. Below is their reply and my short response.

P.S. I think this also shows what we are doing – checking up on the postboxes latest conditions and writing to the relevant departments to put pressure on them when necessary – is really useful and, dare I say, making a difference.

On 3 May 2011 17:12, Matthew Wong  wrote:

Dear Mr. SIN,

Due to the road construction work by Highways Department, the old posting no. 202 is temporarily removed and a temporary posting box was set up to maintain the service. The old posting box no. 202 is now kept in our office. Once the work is completed, the box will be reinstated at the original location.

Should you require any further information, please feel free to call me at 2356 2501.

Thanks and end

Dear Mr Wong,

Many thanks and I think I can speak for all old colonial-era postboxes lovers in Hong Kong that that is very good news.

Yours sincerely,

Very Bad news: The old beautiful QEII pillar box has now been replaced by a rather characterless new box. As the new one is not permanently implanted into the ground yet and there is some construction work going on near the postbox, there may be a chance that it’s a temporary replacement of the old. We’ve written to the relevant department to demand an explanation now. Let’s see.

Re: Fw: Preservation of Old Postboxes in HK

Dear Mr Tang,

I am writing again to raise my concern about the fate of an old Queen Elizabeth II pillar postbox No.202 originally located at Ching Fai House, Tsz Ching Estate, Tsz Wan Shan Road with the Commissioner for Heritage’s Office and the Hongkong Post.

It is noticed that this old box has now been removed and replaced by a new one (photos for the old and new No.202 attached, or they can be viewed at these links: old http://www.flickr.com/photos/39410684@N02/3694678204/, new http://www.flickr.com/photos/52300433@N03/5678599663/).

In your previous email to me dated 13 July 2010, you said, in explaining why the Commissioner for Heritage’s Office has only planned to preserve nine old postboxes, “In addition to the aforementioned oval-shaped post box, there are 48 other post boxes cast during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II in Hong Kong.  They are still in service and Hongkong Post currently has no plan to remove them.  They are therefore not covered in our current discussion with Hongkong Post focusing on preserving the nine post boxes.”

As shown in the photo of the old No.202 taken back in 2009 I attached, this old pillar box was still then in very good condition and therefore there did not seem to be any legitimate reasons for the Hongkong Post to retire it.

To all heritage-concerned members of the public and especially the Commissioner for Heritage’s Office which seems to have entrusted the Hongkong Post to maintain these other old postboxes not included in the 9-box preservation plan, I believe, Hongkong Post owes an explanation.

Yours sincerely,

Sin Wai Man

搜索隊回報 – 郵筒239

此筒因兩大原因在港十分獨特:

a.  據《香港郵筒的故事》記載, 此類雙入口橢圓形大筒香港只曾於1970年代引入兩枚 (the other one has been retired);
b.  此筒原用於蘇格蘭,而因英格蘭源用的ERII及代表英格蘭皇室的皇冠標誌, 用於蘇格蘭郵筒時曾被當地反英格蘭的民族主義者破壞, 故蘇格蘭郵筒沒有鑄上ERII及其上之皇冠款式亦為蘇格蘭皇冠(Crown of Scotland),而非本港常見的英格蘭皇室皇冠。。

在港較常見英格蘭皇室皇冠標誌 IMG_1111shrapen    蘇格蘭皇冠 159805_10151186950244931_543439285_n

搜索隊回報 – 郵筒 235

*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.

Correspondence with HK Post in which this postbox was mentoned:
(HK Post reply dated 2 January 2013)

Dear Mr. Sin,

At this beginning of 2013, here’s specially wishing you another joyous and successful year!

First of all, may I thank you and your team for the untiring efforts in caring our posting boxes. There are definitely areas for us to do better in respect of preservation of the vintage posting boxes. Please be assured that we have been working hard with AMO on this aspect.

For SPB No.235 Lei Yue Mun GRV box, may wish to be updated that repainting has been carried out in late November 2012 and a photo taken is attached for your reference. We are aware that the location of this posting box is not desirable. We have sought professional advice from the Works Section of the District Office and was advised that the site situation did not suggest relocation of the posting box as that might have implication to the structure of the nearby stall and the posting box itself. Meanwhile, we will continue to keep close watch on the condition of this box. (See attached file: SPB235(AfterPaint)1_27.11.12.jpg).

We are sorry that because no suitable contractor was found in the first tender exercise for preservation of the 9 vintage posting boxes, we have taken longer time in arranging the preservation work. The contract has finally been awarded in late December 2012 and the preservation work is planned to be carried out in the 1st quarter of 2013 if everything going smooth.

For the other posting boxes, we have in place a scheduled repainting plan. I understand that my colleague Candy will take follow-up action to see if priority should be given to those identified.

With warm regards,
Mary

31/12/2012 update

多謝大家嘅參與,我哋已經檢驗咗58個有皇冠標誌嘅郵筒,大多狀況良好(仲有一個喺沙頭角禁區,可惜我哋去唔到)。

至於幾個有問題嘅,我已經寫信比郵政署,要求跟進。所以可以說覆檢已經大功告成。

新嘅一年大家得閒就去探下啲郵筒啦,然後 send 啲相俾我再 share 出去;至於一年一度嘅大型覆檢,就會同今年一樣,喺十月中至十二月進行。

最後,特別感謝今年有去探望過啲郵筒嘅26位搜索隊隊員/朋友。

Letter to HK Post after 2012 Annual Checkup

Dear Ms Chung,

I hope this email finds you well. As you might already be aware my team has been conducting an annual checkup for all the vintage postboxes, and this has just been completed. We are very glad to note most boxes have been repainted and are in fairly good conditions. However, we also find the conditions of the following boxes wanting:

  1. No.252, GRV pillar box at Sok Kwu Wan, Lamma Island (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/729429198/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92256/): rusting (especially near the foot) and faded paint. We are indeed surprised that this box has apparently not been repainted or well maintained like the other two GRV pillar boxes Nos. 91 and 235.  Given that this box is one of the oldest and on the list of the nine preserved boxes, we hope immediate attention would be accorded to it.
  2. Three GRV/GRVI wall boxes:

    No.401, Ming Shun Tsuen / Tui Min Hoi, Sai Kung: rusting and peeled paint on the door. (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/726271163/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92401/)

    No.227, School Road, Cheung Chau (GRVI): unevenly faded paint (indicative of a poor paint job or internal rusting?) and rusting near the door and on the door hinge.

    (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/726382665/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92-227/)

    No.110 – Chung Chi College / Tai Po Road, Bus Stop : faded and peeled paint.

    (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/726259214/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92110/)

    As these boxes are also on the nine-box preservation list, we believe better attention is warranted. We indeed think the fine job done by your department on another GRV wall box No.55 at Cassia Road / Magnolia Road, Yau Yuet Tsuen sets a very good standard to follow (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/725717919/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%9255/).

  3. No.370, ERII wall box at Tai Mong Tsai Bus Terminal, Sai Kung: rusting in the lower half of the box (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/726268615/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92370/).  We notice that the condition of this box has already been vasttly improved since April 2011 and we appreciate the effort. However, the rusting seems to have recurred now. We therefore believe measures should be taken again to remove the existing rust and further anti-rusting treatment is due.
  4. We also wish to bring to your attention three relatively minor cases. No.90, Kwun Tong Road, Kai Tak Mansion: peeled paint and this seems to be the only ERII box that has not been repainted recently (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/701388581/2562832034385382223822577—371093157090/). No.162, Fu On House,Tai Wo Hau Estate, Tai Wo Hau (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/717768245/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92162/) and No.96 at Castle Peak Road, Seaview Garden, Tsing Yung Street (http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/726235356/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%9296/): unauthorized bills posted on both of these two ERII boxes.

Also, per our earlier correspondence on the No.235 Lei Yue Mun GRV box, I still have not heard from your colleague Ms. Candy Fung about its latest condition; I hope attention has already been given to it.

Last but not the least, may I wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year!

With best wishes,

Sin Wai Man

============================================================

HK Post’s reply of 8/11/2012 to our earlier email:

“Dear Mr. Sin,

Just back from leave and sorry for not replying your mail earlier. First of all we are thankful for the untiring efforts of your team in conducting checkup for our posting boxes. I have referred your observations and suggestions to my colleague Ms. Candy Fung who is in charge of posting boxes. She is looking into the matter and will revert to you as soon as possible.

Last but not least, thanks again for bringing the matter to our attention.

With best regards,

Letter to HK Post dated 6/11/2012 regarding the condition of this box:

“Dear Ms Chung,

I had an opportunity to visit postbox No.235 at Hoi Phong Road, Lei Yue Mun yesterday and found it to be in very poor condition again. You will notice from the attached photos (more could be viewed here: https://picasaweb.google.com/101558989128314488492/No2355112012?authuser=0&feat=directlink) that the lower part of the box looked particularly worrying.  I understand this is perhaps due to no fault of the Hong Kong Post but I think another round of maintenance in the near future would be helpful. Given the unfavourable location of this box that may cause it to be splashed with sea water from the nearby seafood stalls, I would suggest more frequent maintenance, say, in the form of a wash every month, is needed for this box.  In the long run, I hope Hong Kong Post could relocate this box to a spot more conducive to its preservation.
P.S. Our search team is currently conducting an annual checkup on the old postboxes, we have so far visited some 20 boxes and found them all (except this Lei Yue Mun box) in fairly good conditions. Please allow me to convey our appreciation. Our checkup records could be found on our blog: http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/)
With best wishes,
Sin Wai Man”

P.S. Our search team is currently conducting an annual checkup on the old postboxes, we have so far visited some 20 boxes and found them all (except this Lei Yue Mun box) in fairly good conditions. Please allow me to convey our appreciation. Our checkup records could be found on our blog: http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/)
With best wishes,
Sin Wai Man”

Correspondence with HK Post on the small defect

16/4/2012

Dear Ms Chung,

I thought I shared with you one observation of mine on the two KGV boxes when I paid them a visit today. I think the overall repainting was well done. However, minor paint peel-off is already noticeable on a different spot on each box (please see attached pictures). I do not want to sound nitpicky but given the paint job was newly finished, this perhaps reflects badly on the workmanship of the contractor engaged.
Best regards,
Sin Wai Man
