History of post box:
WHEN A 3,300-POUND IRA BOMB exploded in the center of Manchester, England on June 15, 1996, this post box survived almost unscathed by the blast. It became a small but mighty symbol for resilience in the face of terrorism.
The bright red post box—an iconic British structure akin to the country’s phone booths—was one of the few structures left standing. The mail it contained was untouched and was delivered as if nothing had happened.
