Several differences, but maybe it's one of your own pics at another time?
I can't get the angle on streetview.

It was one of my photos Bill. Mr Google doesn't drive his camera car on the pavement, hence the different view. The pizza parlour in your picture used to be the Swinton Crown Post Office and there used to be two post boxes side by side.

Thanks, that was a tough one!
Thought I was on the right track several times - then realized that ALL the railings in Salford are painted blue!
Tried looking at some previous versions of this photo, and the box seems to have been moved from the front of the shop to its present position.
Next box coming up...
