The Pillar box - A victim of the tram crash?

I noticed Corrie had a shiny new pillar box in Monday's episode of Corrie, after the previous one was taken out by the flying tram of Weatherfield. Which got me thinking, how long was the old pillar box on the street?

I decided to ask at the fantastic Back on the street blog, and they replied with a brilliant history of the prop and uncovered that the old pillar box might have been there since day one!

Great topic to explore, Chewy. One of the things I like about Coronation Street is the familiarity of the characters as well as the sets, and this one piece of the set keeps the continuity through the ages!

What's happened to the Newsboy who used to stand outside the Kabin blowing a bugle I think?

A lovely tribute to the pillar box. Sad to say, but I miss it more than I miss Ashley and Molly!
