Another miniature today, but this time it’s singing postboxes.  Obviously.

They’re the work of Pieter Huveneers in 1957.  They also exist in portrait format (below) but I think I prefer these ones.  Does anyone know where these small format posters were displayed?

Maybe four is a jollier number for carol singers.

(Apologies for the quality of some of the photographs  by the way – they were only ever meant as reference shots for us, well before Quad Royal was ever thought of, never mind an advent calendar.  I am going to go and reshoot some of the worst offenders when I get a moment.)
