This is an original VR post box outside the White Star Line building (now housing the Titanic Exhibition). This is the building where the last few people boarded the Titanic from launches that departed from here (the Titanic was moored out in the bay).

I wonder how many poignant letters were posted in this box on that fateful day by people who never arrived at their destination?
