My latest project, a 1d and 1/2d stamp vending machine with built in post box. These would have been around in the 1940s in your local post office. They also had an advertising board placed on the top.

Not a collector of stamp related items, but do have a double vendor in a wooden cabinet. Like the looks of the postal unit in one and am sure I have similar items sold as hotel items and guess they could have been sited in varied locations. Would be good to see the front.


Very informative site mr PM and will have to work out which one mine fits with.

Oooooohhh, it's Irish, from county Cork, which I know well (my mother is from Cork and I spent some of my childhood there as we had a farm). Might also explain the letters being painted green as from memory post boxes in Ireland are that colour.

Very nice !!THUMBSX2!!
