      <div>ok, the term might still be in use, but if you're not used to
        the term it's evoking pictures like this: <a

    I suspect that is still relevant for many hand written envelopes
    & awkward shaped parcels<br>

      <div>according to google, sorting office is most important in
        dictionaries and mail centre is most important in the real world

    This is interesting. From what wikipedia says, the building I was
    tagging in Britain may not be classed as a sorting office/mail
    centre any more, but a 'delivery office'. (only 28 taginfo of a
    claimed 1,356 - maybe a good quarterly project for Talk-GB?).<br>
