2013 North Swan Road

If you're moving like a snail today after a big Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, this mailbox is for you:


I actually found the mailbox on October 18th. It's just north of the mailboxes we saw last time.

Dimelo's Story Mailboxes (and more)

Here's a entry from the Limón y Sal blog that's partly about a story mailbox project. Click the “this one” link, underneath the photo of artist Rudy Flores, to see one of the wild mailboxes he's planning. There are more mailbox photos at the left side near the bottom of the page — though none as wild as the story mailbox.

Here's the blog entry: Downtown: Old Pueblo Studios.

2005 and 2007 North Swan Road



As you're headed southbound on Swan past Grant, just to your right — or headed northbound past Pima, across the road on your left — is this double-headed set of mailboxes. Behind is (what I think is a) kachina dancer.

I rolled by — and stopped! — on October 18th.

4401 East Glenn Street



What happened to this mailbox? Is that duct tape around it? I didn't make a note about it when I stopped by on October 17th.

The big attraction, anyway, is the post covered with multicolored rocks.

4349 East Glenn Street

We've got bountiful boxes now, so I'll start posting two a week.


I think this might be a ladybug mailbox: red with black spots and two antennae!?


I buzzed by (do ladybugs buzz?) on October 17th.

12550 West Manville Road



This flag-covered mailbox is just in time for Veterans Day. Although the address is on Manville Road, I spotted it a bit farther north on Sanders Road, October 25th.

The door is held (mostly) closed with a thick rubber band. You can see that better in the photo of the other side, below. It faces south and has probably been blasted by the Sun for years.
