The US Postal Service has been delivering our mail since 1775, with the first Postmaster General being Benjamin Franklin. The original mailboxes at the end of a driveway were all the same, taking on the appearance similar to a loaf of bread and with a small, red flag used as a way to communicate with the mailman or mailwoman.
Times have changed and people have decided that the days of the boring mailbox are gone. Now is the time for fresh, inventive and exciting mailboxes. This is a tribute to just a few of these mailboxes we have found during some of our neighborhood walks in Palm Springs.
If you have an unusual mailbox, feel free to post it on our fan page. We always appreciate your comments.
