Mailboxes Etc a Collection of Various Post Box Designs and Colors
Some interesting mailboxes, nothing more.
U.S. Mail Box, Rural Route Edition
Your typical, basic Post Master General Approved standard rural-issue mailbox. Except for the neat patina due to years of exposure in the elements, -its pretty much just yawn…
Newark, New Jersey American Pride
This is more typically seen in towns celebrating their centennial, sesquicentennial (150 yrs.) or bicentennial. I’m actually a little but surprised that the USPS sanctions their mailboxes to be anything other than the legislated colors of Navy Blue. Postal Drop Boxes are Government property after all, subject to all the boring rules and regulations of standard size, color, placement, etc. But I like the variation shown here.
Colors of the Palette
These look like houses in Newfoundland, Canada. There, it is more typical to paint houses in non-typical colors. Especially note-worthy if the houses are side-by-side. The colors are splendid and appealing.
Santa Fe, New Mexico USA
You Know, -Juneau!
Juneau, Alaska USA
These R2-D2 USPS Mail Boxes are cropping up in various states; Alaska, New Mexico, California, Georgia, etc. Don’t believe me? I find your lack of faith disturbing. Check out the link (above) to see the invasion of the R2 units.
I know some Star Wars fans (and one avid fan in particular) that would love to have one of these! Quick R2! –Shut down the garbage disposal unit on the detention level! –Shut down the garbage disposal unit on the detention level! Hurry!
Here is an example of some homeopathic decoration and adornments to a private postal box.
Now this is rather clever. At least, the “hotmail” slogan by the image author. I saw a private citizen’s yard that had a several mailboxes. The first one, a standard U.S. Postmaster General Approved version, labeled “First Class Mail.” Next to it was a beat-up rusty mail box labeled “Second Class Mail.” Next, a round metal tube on a pole labeled “Circulars.” Beside it, a sawed-off wooden beam about half the normal height and labeled “Partial Post” (“Parcel Post”). The next mailbox to its side was a galvanized trash can labeled “Junk Mail” and beside that, a very tall pole with a mailbox about 25-feet up in the air. That one had an arrow pointing upwards, labeled “Special Delivery.”
I Am Canadian!
Well, not really but I am quite familiar with the distinctive red Post boxes and logo of the Canada Post. This one is decked out very nicely in the deco of the sugar maple leaf, the national emblem.
Corpus Christi, Texas
Rustic, original. I like this one. Would not change a thing. This would go for a mint on Etsy.com or eBAY.com
You May Be a Redneck If…
This could be part of a Jeff Foxworthy comedy routine.
This mail box bears a disturbing resemblance to a fire hydrant. I wonder if they have problems with kerrs relieving themselves upon these? Eww!
Stamps Commemorating Post Boxes
So, which came first? The Post Box or the stamp? Royal Mail Special Stamps “Pillar to Post” issue, debut: October 8th, 2002.
Don’t Go Postal!
This video with its laugh tracks clearly, without a doubt, is a skit. I know that it is. I think that it might be. Well I’m not sure… but it is disturbing to say the least.
We’ve Got Mail!
That is so cute! Aww…
