Red Letter Box

IMG_0731

The red letter box is one of my favourite things from childhood. Many a time I wish to have one to hang on our house gate, but it never happened. Our current house had a letter box and it broke down last year, though it isn’t a red letter box.

I find the above red letter box from the side gates of the KFC restaurant in Kottivakkam, when we parked aside, I shot the image meanwhile dad went to buy chicken popcorn for me. You could also see a dog behind, and I found it friendly as it moves around undisturbed the employees coming out and in, which perhaps could be a kitchen.

Wonderful contrast.

I often wondered whether letter boxes had to be red colour while many countries don't use red at all. I guess it must be due to India, Malaysia and others were under British rules.

These days there are no hanging letter boxes seen anywhere,at least I've not seen one. People have letter boxes built inside the column of the main gates. '

Hi Jeevan-
The postbox and the dog are a great combination to capture.
Love it!

We used to have one red letter box hung to our gate. But now our letter box is built inside the column of our main gate. We can still see many of these red letter boxes hanging outside the gate of other houses.

That color of red does make it so exciting. I wonder how your tradition of red boxes started. All of our boxes are now gray metal or green and white plastic,
