Dear Mr Tang,

Further to my last year’s correspondence with you, I am writing to bring to the attention of the Commissioner for Heritage’s Office and the Hongkong Post of the precarious condition of Postbox 438 at Beacon Height, Tai Wo Ping, Kowloon.

When I visited that postbox today, I noticed part of the front of the box (the frame-like part) has partially come off (please see attached photos 1 and 2 or, alternatively, they can be viewed at this link http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/725718106/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92438/ as the third and fourth pictures). Although there seems no danger of its completely coming off, I think it would be prudent to have that part fixed.

And I believe this is feasible as another postbox (No. 232 at On Hing House / Hing Wah (II) Estate, Chai Wan) which had a similar problem last year has now been so mended (apparently by welding the coming-off part bak to the main body; please see third attached picture or photos at this link http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/725717009/%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2%E9%9A%8A%E5%9B%9E%E5%A0%B1—%E9%83%B5%E7%AD%92-232/). I sincerely hope this will not be taken by Hongkong Post as an opportunity to remove this wall-mounted ERII box, especially given its uniqueness for being taller and slimmer than most other wall-mounted boxes in Hong Kong. Should that happen it would make a mockery of the joint effort of the Commissioner for Heritage’s Office and Hongkong Post to preserve the other chosen nine postboxes.

You may wish to note that my friends and I who are all enthusiastic about historical postbox preservation in Hong Kong are endeavouring to inspect all known old postboxes to see how they have fared in the past year and to document their latest conditions. Our findings will be shared on this Facebook page:  http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=163686143684546 and this blog: http://hkpostbox.xanga.com/

Yours sincerely,

Sin Wai Man
