搜索隊回報 – 郵筒192

記 錄 員: 0052 richyanyan隊員

地 點: 山頂道/夏力道 (舊山頂餐廳外) (on Google Map, 經緯度 Coordinates: 22°16′ 16.03″ 114°8′ 58.11″)

QEII (ERII) 伊利沙伯二世 (1952-)

Manufacturer: Carron Company, Stirlingshire

——————————

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,  is connected to its Victorian predecessor by an invisible thread of history. (For photos of old boxes at this location, see 189219091940’s.)

註:此郵筒於31/12/2013曾因交通事故嚴重損毀(見此),郵政署於六月通知已完成修復。現在可見修復工作非常完善,原本筒頭及筒身分裂痕位置,修補後不留痕跡,原本過厚的油漆亦被較薄、令皇冠細節亦清晰可見的取代。Good job!

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”
