Hello,

I'm putting together a vignette of a Brit Para in Northen Ireland. around 1970 - 1972.
Of particular interest to me is any pictures of mail / post boxes in Ireland during this period as I have plans of scratching one for this 120mm project. I have found several photos via google but none have an object in the photo that I can use to estimate size / dimensions.

Any help is greatly appreciated,
Cheers,
Andy

Though estimating size might still be difficult :-)
