上海街皇冠郵筒 a post box with british royal cypher

2015.09.01 | 上海街 shanghai street
上月頭,遊走油麻地,周圍留影,只為日常紀錄這風味滿盈卻每日幻褪的社區。之前也走過這郵筒不少次,也曾快攝。但那天不知是否有感召,花了時間替他留影。
還記得當日回家,知道當區的夏銘記麵店傳出將關門的消息,半個月後正式結業;今天香港人已經對夏銘記忘懷。
那我們的新世代又需要多少時間對香港的英國殖民地歷史模糊呢?也許很快。因為本城的政府正不遺餘力推動。
early last month, i did my casual photo-recording walk along shanghai street and managed to spend some time on this post box on shanghai street. i am a mail person, i still post christmas cards to friends if they allow me to do so.
the news of the authority decided to cover the british royal cyphers of the remaining dozens of old post boxes really trouble me. what’s going on with this city’s governing body? why the rush to erase history? what’s the rush to bury conscience and integrity in so many matters of this city?
