Blue pillar box, Manchester

I have been unable to ascertain why this pillar box, located outside Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry, is sky blue rather than the customary red. A possible explanation is that it’s for the use of long-suffering Manchester City fans who not only have to endure the continuing success of arch-rivals Manchester United, but also would otherwise have to post their letters in Man U-coloured pillar boxes!
