Nassau - Pillar Box on Parliament Square

This pillar box, a British style mail box, stands on Parliament Street in Nassau, Bahamas, by Parliament Square. It bears the initials of Queen Elizabeth II.

 

They were first used in Britain in 1852. The design was more or less standardized by 1905.

 

I believe this is the only pillar box that I have seen in the Caribbean.
