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”

搜索隊回報 – 郵筒256

*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.

最初是貪得意講笑,話要成立搜索隊,完全冇諗過咁多人有興趣,亦冇諗過可以救到啲舊郵筒。

但係誤打誤撞,當我地喺2010年1月發現一個半年前(2009年8月),我地幫佢影相時重好地地嘅英皇佐治五世(1910-1936)郵筒,即將喺索罟灣被拆走,我地就好想幫佢做番啲野,所以就寫咗兩次信去報紙嘈香港郵政。

但係香港郵政企硬話個筒太舊冇得救,所以我地已經諗住要同佢忍著淚說 goodbye!

然後隔咗一排,長春社開始要求保育郵筒(我地都有幫手,重上埋報紙添)。最初香港郵政都係唔似會啋。

但係到六月終於有好消息,佢地話會研究保育嘅方法。今次佢地似係講真,因為佢地搵建築署修復咗索罟灣郵筒,並重新安放原址。

所以真係好開心,好在當初我地冇偷懶,因為想為自己嘅地方嘅歷史做番啲野,所以就去搜索,去寫信嘈,冇諗住要有什麼成果,但係又失驚無神做到啲成績!

搜索隊回報 – 赤柱舊紅色郵筒

*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 (及此已退役佐治六世郵箱)、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 this retired 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.

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

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

Reply from HK Post 26/7/2012

Dear Mr. Sin,

Thanks for bringing me to the attention of the deteriorating condition of posting box 219 at Mui Wo Ferry Pier, Lantau. My colleague Ms. Candy Fung, Manager(Network) will follow up on this. She will keep you informed of the status in due course.

With best regards,
Mary

搜索隊回報 – 郵筒401

*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.

註:今日見到這個郵筒真的很高興,因為香港郵政應該是選擇了用不少人力物力,將這個入/嵌牆式郵筒由原位搬遷到十米外的另一個位置,而捨棄了它以前可能會選擇的的處理方法 — 將之棄置。 希望這代表香港郵政真的改變了它對舊郵筒的保育政策。(雖然筒身那個框狀裝置有部分剝離,但應該問題不大。)
