Nicknamed the Vermillion Giant, the K4 was a combined telephone and post box with stamp vending machine. The design was introduced in 1927 but they proved unpopular with customers. Only 50 were ever produced and most were withdrawn in 1935. However, around 10 survive in the UK including this one in Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear.

Historic British post boxes. There was a period where blue post boxes were briefly in vogue. These boxes, such as this George V example, which stands outside Windsor Castle, were for air mail. They were introduced to tourist venues between 1930 and 1938. However, having separate air mail boxes proved to be too costly and in 1938 the Royal Mail decided any box could be used to post air mail. The Windsor box is now a tourist attraction only, and can no longer be used.
