搜索隊回報 – 郵筒181

記 錄 員: 003狗邦隊員

記 錄 日 期: 1/8/2018

地 點: 九龍城 太子道 南角道 交界 (on Google Map, 經緯度 Co-ordinates: 22°19′ 40.23″ 114°11′ 23.01″)

QEII (ERII) 伊利沙伯二世 (1952-)

Manufacturer: Carron Company, Stirlingshire

Special note: 相信是因地鐵工程關係,所以郵筒從數米外被遷到現在位置 (cf. 08/06/2011)。此郵筒在原有位置曾在一警匪槍戰中中彈(中彈位置是一現已被移除的附加其上的郵票售賣機),所以現在搬離原位,實在有點可惜。 不過新位置似乎較先前轉角位置安全,被交通意外損毀的機會應較細(此前柴灣 興華邨郵筒即因此損毀)。

Special history of this box (source with photos on pps. 15-16 http://www.somanhing.com/ftihk/pdf/assignment/letterbox.pdf):

“圖84是位於九龍城太子道南角道口的編號181號郵筒,屬粗圓柱型,但郵筒身附設一部投幣售郵票機,出售1角郵票,成為了俗稱所謂”揹仔郵筒”。 據資料顯示,香港第一個”揹仔郵筒”, 是位於中環皇后大道中雲咸街口的115號郵筒, 在1964年8月試驗性在當年粗圓柱型郵筒的筒身安裝了一部1角投幣售郵票機,經數月之試驗,效果良好,乃在全港推廣 (圖85是當年相關的剪報)。 不過,由於近年出售郵票的渠道增多,這種依附郵筒旁的售票機已完成歷史任務, 相繼被拆走了。

這座181號郵筒, 它除作一般市民寄信用途外,還對警察有另一用途,原來該郵筒設立在多間金鋪附近,在1985年3月郵筒附近南角道一間金鋪被打劫,當時巡邏的警察接到報告,到達案發現場時,與賊人發生槍戰,警察當時用該”揹仔郵筒”作為掩護物和賊人槍戰,最後成功拘捕打劫的賊人,事後發現該郵筒身上被賊人的子彈打中多槍,郵筒竟變作警察的護身符。 從圖86可見, 槍戰翌日, 九龍城街坊路過時, 莫不對此 “護駕功臣” 駐足而觀,指點郵筒身上的累累彈痕呢! 圖87是當年有關此新聞的剪報。 不過在案發後數星期,郵筒上的投幣售郵票機也被拆除了,筒身也髹上新裝,把當天驚險事件的留痕也遮蓋了(圖88)!  雖然事隔多年,此郵筒亦已改披綠衣 (圖89), 但槍戰的故事相信很多老街坊都不會忘記。”

註:搜索隊2011年11月接獲市民通知(見此)此舊郵筒「正被膠袋套著並貼上告示, 指受損壞影響而暫停使用。本人發現郵箱232附近有一個疑似新郵箱, 害怕是郵政署打算移除東區最後的一個殖民地郵箱。」

所以搜索隊就聯絡郵政署,於12月得到的回覆為: 此郵筒因被一汽車碰撞,所以筒身出現了一條大裂痕,因恐郵筒倒塌傷及途人,所以暫停使用。郵政署表示因裂痕很大,所以香港郵政現正尋求專家意見,研究如何收復。又說若未能成功,會考慮以倉存的另一依利沙伯二世郵筒原址代替。

搜索隊2012年3月到訪郵筒232,發現該舊圓柱型殖民時代郵筒,仍然被膠袋套著在待修狀態,而附近則有一個筒身沒有植入地內的小型臨時郵筒。不過通知我們的市民之前電郵所附照片,放在地上被藍白膠袋包裹的疑似較大型新郵箱,則不再復見。希望郵政署如之前所言,仍未有放棄收復該因交通意外損毀的舊郵筒。

到了2012年4月搜索隊接獲郵政署發言人電郵通知,舊232已損壞不能重修,故由另一同型號舊郵筒代替。

新安裝的郵筒現2012年10月狀況極佳,皇冠、字體等細節清晰可見。

註:今日開始了第一次覆檢。因為這個郵筒去年的狀況已經不佳 – 有部分因銹蝕似將剝落 – 所以擔心香港郵政已將其拆毀,心情有點戰戰兢兢。因此當看到此郵筒不單依然健在,更在維收後不再甩皮甩骨及披上了一層新漆油,我就喜不自禁,更加聯想到香港郵政應是因我們去年的努力,才會善待這舊郵筒的 (從網上找到的資料可知在2009年此郵筒已是銹蝕嚴重)。所以,各位會幫手覆檢的朋友,加油!

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”

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.)

Correspondence with the Post Office requesting maintenance for this postbox (in reverse chronological order)

21/2/2017

Dear Mr Sin,

Thank you for your email of 11 January 2017 and our subsequent updates regarding the Street Posting Box (SPB) Number 131(located at La Salle Road, Kowloon Tong) and Number 215 (located at Mui Wo Ferry Pier, Lantau Island).

Please be advised that the repainting work of these two SPBs have been completed. Photos showing their conditions after the re-painting work are attached for your reference, please.

SPB 131 (at La Salle Road, Kowloon Tong) – completed on 16.2.17

SPB 215 (at Mui Wo Ferry Pier, Lantau Island) – completed on 20.2.17

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me.

regards,
Sonia

===========================================
9/2/2017

Dear Mr Sin,

Another updates that we have engaged a contractor, and it is expected that the suitable maintenance and repainting work for the two posting boxes would be completed by around early Mar 2017.

We will keep you posted once the job is completed.

Regards,
Sonia

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

20/1/2017

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

Letter to Post Office on 21/11/2013

“Dear Ms Chung,

I had an opportunity to visit this postbox yesterday and noticed a fairly large piece of paint near its bottom had come off and, worryingly, the exposed area appeared to have rusted.
When I checked my record, I noticed we have spotted similar issues around the area below the words “Post Office” on this box before. (We are grateful that not long after my correspondence with you in July 2012 regarding those issues we noticed the box had been meticulously repainted.)
Seeing the rust now and given its occurrence not far from the spot of last year’s problem, I am worried the box may be afflicted with rust underneath the paint and would suggest some immediate action for it.
Best regards,
Sin Wai Man “

Our correspondence with HK Post regarding this box’s peeling paint:

From us 25/7/2012:

Dear Ms Chung,

I hope this email finds you well. I just received two photos (attached for your reference) of the captioned box, which show clusters of peeling paint on its lower part, I think perhaps some attention is warranted.

Best regards,

Sin Wai Man
