Cast Iron Pillar Boxes were once a common sight on the streets of Perth and in the country towns of Western Australia. In WA the fabrication of these pillar boxes was predominantly carried out by a local firm with their name "J & E Ledger" clearly marked on each of the pillar boxes they made. So who were the people and the firm behind the name and when did the Ledgers start their manufacturing in WA? pp. 53 illusts First Edition #1119
