:think: Am I correct, that on the letterbox on the main pic (besides the traffic lights for rjluna2) is the inscription "ER"?

Most likely, although there's a chance it has GR on it (from George V or VI's reign)

After 1953, post boxes in Scotland have worn the Crown of Scotland rather than Queen Elizabeth II's Royal Cypher, after several acts of vandalism on post boxes wearing the latter. See 'The Ballad of the Inch' (http://www.campin.me.uk/Embro/Webrelease/Embro/17riot/text/Inch.htm) and 'Sky-High Joe' (http://www.scotsindependent.org/features/singasang/skyhigh.htm).

Post-1953 Scottish post boxes have ER instead of EIIR as ingo's comment, because the current Lizzie is the first one of that name to reign over Scotland, which was a separate country/kingdom when Lizzie I ruled England. Main picture is Hyndland Rd (Glasgow) at the junction with Clarence Drive. 4th thumb is Hyndland St (not a bus route) looking downhill/south to the junction with Dumbarton Rd - the Comet store - now closed - on the far side is where I bought this laptop I'm tapping away on.

My impression is, that in SCO you can find more of such very old letterboxes than in the rest of the UK.

Even older, I think. In Ardmay:

Here's a gold one for ingo, from N Yorkshire:

They had a phase after the 2012 Olympics of painting a postbox gold in the home town/village of every GB gold medal winner. This is Hebden, where Andy Hodge (rowing) grew up.
