Post boxes

In my holidays I took photos of public post boxes sometimes, but sometimes I forgot it. Feel free to upload your own, but not letter boxes please.

Dear friends, I'm very glad that so many of us took photos of post boxes or mail boxes on this group forum. Here are the 10 photos of mine:

Haha, Katerina. Your neighbors need us to send them mail art? (Yah, I don't have enough to do.) US mail boxes are blue + huge, you got that right. The shape, the design--it doesn't do anything. It's so thick-waisted.

Actually, I like US MAIL boxes, they are blue and huge, and jolly and happy looking! (Are you reading this, Val???)

And at our place of residence, they are also called MAIL boxes, because that is where the MAIL Art is to be found. My MAIL box at Glinou 20 is very jolly and happy because it loves filling up with MAIL  art. The other MAIL boxes are not so happy!

The only reasonable thing about "mail box" here is that they are as boring and plain as their name. They all look the same. I'd love to say post or letter box, but no one would know what I'm talking about.

Some say POST box,

some say LETTER box,

and in that country across the Big Pond,

from sea to shining sea, it is MAIL box! ;-)

It's like a "boot" and a "hood" or a "trunk"...

The title of this Group is "POST boxes", and so...

... it should not be allowed for anyone to refer to those horrible things called 'Mail boxes' ....

..or else all your post will ber forever lost.

You have been warned!

Theresa: I'm not sure what the effects on my mail delivery would be if I was to pass your message on to monsieure le Corrier -- it might get better, or then again it might get worse. Perhpas you could send a photo of yourself to him, and I'll stick it to the outside of my post box for him. And then we will see.....

Katerina: I suppose that the Post Office sells them off from time to time, but I don't really know; they are probably available on e-Bay, but I don't look at ebay...ever. It used to be possible to buy old telephone boxes, and they turn up all over the world.

Ruud: can you make Mr Reede and Honorary member of IUOMA?

Regards to all Val
