119 South Irving Avenue
I'm back from vacation. On with the mailboxes!
This box has one of the chain posts that I usually don't show. It's the surroundings that make this light green mailbox special:
Next to the mailbox are two stylized wooden saguaros, also painted green (but a more-saturated version of the color).
The saguaros and mailbox are surrounded by a rock garden. It's a nice spot to drive by and admire just east of Randolph Park. (It's also a couple of blocks away from a very fun mural along Broadway, just east of Alvernon. (If you come east on Broadway from Alvernon, turn right at Longfellow and park to see the mural. Then drive south a block to Cooper, where little San Clemente Park is a pleasant place to sit. Go east on Cooper, then take the second left turn (north) onto Irving. This mailbox scene is half a block north, on the right.
Below are a Google Map of this little “tour”...

Enjoy! (And welcome back to this blog.)
