# An old postal rebus

This was all that was written on the envelope:

Where should it be delivered?

(Saw this somewhere ages ago. The original source has been lost to time.)

• This sounds like a letter that Willie Reginald Bray would send. Dec 28, 2017 at 18:53
• This is a nifty rebus and a cute puzzle. That said, were I the postal carrier, I'd still mark it as UNDELIVERABLE and return it to the sender.

• The most cryptically addressed postcard I ever sent that I know to have been received was to: The Very Narrow House Opposite the Albion, Peel Terrace, STAFFORD. That was because I'd forgotten my friend's house number. One addressed to myself with just my house number and postcode never arrived. Dec 28, 2017 at 21:13
• I recently heard of a really really detailed address to the recipient that was delivered - the opposite of this problem, of course Dec 29, 2017 at 18:42

I think it should be delivered to

John Underwood

Who lives

As the rebus says

John under Wood and over England

• Can't believe I didn't get that, and my parents lived there for 20 years! Dec 28, 2017 at 21:10
