Dear Mr Sin,

Please be updated that we are inviting contractor to carry out suitable maintenance and repainting work for the two posting boxes. We will keep you posted the progress in due course.
Regards, Sonia
====================================

11/1/2017

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

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

17/4/2012

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

“Dear Mr. Sin,

Please be informed that the repainting of Street Posting Box no. 66 at

*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,
Mary”

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”

據本搜索隊查證,香港現仍服役的八個佐治五世佐治六世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,故相當可能為世界獨有。Our research shows the 8 KGV and KGVI boxes in Hong Kong bear royal cyphers different in design from their counterparts in UK or other British colonies (and so are some other details on the box). If we are correct, they are unique all over the world.

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

Good news, looks like this box will be saved!

Note the Post Office’s reply (21/5/2014) to my enquiry as to its latest status: “Regarding Posting box no. 192, the restoration work started last April and subject to the weather condition and the humidity level, the work is expected to complete by early June.”

In full:
Dear Mr. Sin,

Thank you for your email on the captioned subject. I really appreciate your efforts in digging out the manufacturer’s name of Posting Box no. 9 at Ha Tsuen. According to our records, it was installed in the 1960’s. Unfortunately, we have no record on its manufacturer. We are now seeking AMO’s consideration in regard to preservation of this box and see if they could assist to find out its manufacturer.

Regarding Posting box no. 192, the restoration work started last April and subject to the weather condition and the humidity level, the work is expected to complete by early June.

With best regards,
Mary

Restoration has been completed

Letter from the Post Office dated 18/6/2014

Dear Mr. Sin,

Further to my previous mail, I am pleased to inform you that the restoration work for SPB 192 was completed on 31 May 2014. Regarding SPB 9 at Ha Tsuen, AMO advised that we might consider keeping the box in-service at its present location and they would offer advice on conservation treatment of the letter box as and when required.

Subject to the funding allocation, we will consider including the subject letter box in Phase II of the Conservation Program for Vintage Posting Box.

[…]

With best regards,
Mary

Note of appreciation to Post office dated 27/12/2014:
“Dear Ms So,
I refer to the reply from your predecessor Ms Mary Ching regarding the condition of SPB 192. A team member has paid it a visit today and we are all very impressed with the impeccable repair work rendered (https://hkoldpostbox.wordpress.com/tag/192/). Not only is there not any noticeable mark of the original crack, the original thickish painting has also been replaced by a thinner layer that makes the fine details of the crown, in particular, more visible! So please allow me to convey our heartiest appreciation and thanks to the conservation team!
Best regards,
Sin Wai Man”

Note: The first 2 pillar boxes in Hong Kong were imported from UK in 1878. It took another 14 years before the second batch of 14 pillar boxes were imported in 1892. And one of these 14  was installed near the present location up on Victoria Peak. Although it would have been a Victorian box then, one can still feel this QEII box, with its royal cipher and essentially the same pillar shape as a Victorian Jubilee box, standing here is connected to its Victorian predecessor by an invisible thread of history. (For photos of old boxes at this location, see 189219091940’s.)
