Federation Letter Box

 

Recently this red pillar box was moved from just inside the driveway at 24 Meadow Street, and relocated to the front of our headquarters, 119 Swan Street Guildford.

Originally made by the J & E Ledger iron foundry in Pier Street Perth, these pillar boxes were once a common sight in Perth and in country towns.  The distinctive hexagon shaped boxes are a romantic reminder of times gone by.  The J & E Ledger company made about 100 of these boxes in all (and yes, Heath Ledger was a descendent of the owners).
