Mailbox archive: 2237 East 20th Street

Here's the second in a series of mailbox photos that I snapped but never published on this blog. (I'll post two of these each week until I've finished.)

This unique “post” wraps around the cylindrical mailbox. I took the photo on December 10, 2012.

Mailbox archive: Saddle up! 5644 East Fairmount Street

This is the first of a series of mailboxes I photographed but never published on the blog. Back on December 8, 2012, I was out hunting mailboxes, found this one, and was so amazed that I forgot to write the address where I found it! It's a mailbox with a “hump” on the post and a saddle on top.

Luckily, I had the geotagging feature on my cell phone turned on. Last week I checked the photo on a map and found it. A quick look at Google Maps Street View shows that the saddle wasn't there anymore — at least in March 2019 when the Street View car drove by. It's quite a scene… worth a stop if you're in the area (northeast of Craycroft & Speedway)! I'll include that photo below.

4480 South Heather Place

David Aber found another mailbox with a tiki post on October 10, 2017.

Besides the post and the grass shack, he spotted the fun sign on the fence at the left side of this photo. I've zoomed in below:

He sent the photo on January 8th. Thanks, Dave.
