Santa Koala, 3202 East 28th

We started 2013 with a koala bear mailbox, at 3202 East 28th Street, complete with branches and leaves. When I rolled by last Friday, the 27th, I saw that the owner had added some Christmas cheer to the street.

2411 East Waverly Street

I rolled by this sunny spring scene on May 14th: a handpainted white box, covered by — and surrounded by — flowers.

2345 East Elm Street

In case Christmas Day in Tucson doesn't turn out to be bright and sunny, the photo in today's Tucson Murals Project post, Maybe a mural, part 49: Giant flowers on Elm will brighten up your day.

There's also a mailbox at 2345 East Elm, but it's not quite as spectacular as the flowers:

Homeowners at 2345: Thanks for the art… and the box!

PS: I've been super-busy these past few months. There just hasn't been time to post many mailbox photos. I'm hoping to break away a day, soon, to post a lot of the backlog of boxes. Please check back!

Pantano River Park (at Speedway)

Is it the World's Biggest Mailbox? Well, it doesn't actually hold mail, so… maybe not:

It's just east of the Lowe's store on Speedway & Kolb. There's a map and some overall info on the Pima County website. The November 12, 2012 Arizona Daily Star article Tucson Oddity: Postcard tiles, 'mailbox' send welcome message tells more.

I took this photo on November 13th. There are more photos on the Tucson Murals Project blog in the April 21, 2010 entry.
