Exploding post box of Chifley

By Quokka 31 May 2009 25

During the course of my travels I stumbled across this obviously defunct post box in Chifley and wondered if anybody knew the story. An ambivalent poster who submitted a sensitive document and then decided that they desperately needed to retrieve it? Kids with fireworks? A small-scale terrorist inspired by the concept of “think globally, act locally”?

Any musings would assist in alleviating my curiosity…

My friend at work told me today that she generally puts an ice cream contain full of water in her letter box over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend to deter would be vandals. It worked till she forgot to take it out and her mail got soggy 🙂

Apparently the post box was also blown up in 2007. Might be worth giving that particular box a miss around this time of year if you value your mail!

A “firecracker”?

Me thinks not. Anything that can do that sort of steel tearing/bending damage is no longer a “firecracker”. Unless it was homemade…

you speak the truth!

Someone probably wrote an angry letter to the editor which went off prematurely.

That one wins!

Damn, I wish I’d thought of that years ago. I could’ve made a fortune selling prop blown up letterboxes. Ah well.
