Post­card from a far­away let­ter­box

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

OUR let­ter­box her­itage isn’t just con­fined to the UK (‘Wait a minute Mr Post­man’, De­cem­ber 7). Here in Cyprus, we still have Bri­tish let­ter­boxes on both sides of this di­vided island. They are all now painted yel­low, the last red sur­vivor hav­ing dis­ap­peared a cou­ple of years ago from the old town in Paphos. Most have the royal ci­pher cov­ered by the new Cypriot na­tional crests, but not this fine fel­low in Kyre­nia—an­other post-im­pe­rial legacy. Howard Free­man, Paphos, Cyprus
