4225 East Oxford Drive

Here's another great find by David Aber, emailed to me on November 1st. The box is in the middle of the photo, but the surroundings (including the box behind the center of interest) are so colorful that I'll start with his overall shot:

Next, the same photo cropped to show just the bug:

Thanks, as always, David! (You're keeping this bug blog “in flight” (sorry) until I can catch up with the rest of my life!

539 East Linden Street

David Aber rolled by this mostly-complete mailbox along the Bronx Wash:

It's more complete than the front-end bike-box shown on August 5th.

He writes that the logo on the luggage rack indicates that it this bike is an old BMW.

9087 East 7th Street

David Aber emailed this photo on October 6th. The mailbox has a couple (at least) of coats of paint; one is wearing off. Though I'm not sure the homeowner meant the box to look as weathered, I like the effect!

8441 East Appomattox Street

David Aber finds lots of mailboxes in parts of town that I don't reach on my bicycle. Here's one he calls “The Little Engine That Could.” He wrote that it's “made of steel … The homeowner is a retired metalworker from TEP. Obviously skilled.”

He emailed the photo on October 6th.
Update (November 23, 2020): There's another locomotive mailbox at 7046 Flamenco Place.
