What Mailboxes Say about You

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.

  • Your collection of mailbox shots just goes to prove how creative people can be. My favorites here in Florida are of dolphins with the box in their belly, and manatees holding it in their flippers.
