Includes a little card inside the box which reads - "This classic design, with its double aperture, oval shaped pillar was used primarily in large cities. The twin apertures proved useful when dealing with increasing quantities of mail, while also allowing letters to be pre-sorted according to region. Double aperture pillar boxes were first cast in 1899, and are still made in the present reign. Only three of the George VI boxes exist, all in the London EC District.."
