letters


Someone wants to make sure they get mail addressed to them and not 'anonymous' or 'homeowner'!

oops, sorry. I did something with the linky that I shouldn't have... but all is good now. I hope.

A fine tribute to Snail Mail.

I love the mail slot in a door. We have just a regular old mailbox on the house next to our door.

I haven't had home delivery in 38 years. After moving into my new home we ended up with a super box on the street corner.

mail must have been so much smaller back in the day!

Boy, I haven't seen one of those mail slots in years! Nice... Ours is just a box in front of our gate and still the newspaper often gets thrown on the garage ground.

Over here no-one get to keep the mailbox by their house any more. The mail department decides where a neighborhood mail box stand can be located, and everyone have to put up their mail boxes there. Ours is 200 meters from our house.

Oh, gorgeous! I love those old-style, "real" signs :)

First time here. I loved seeing all the unusual signs.

This is one thing we don't have here in Cambodia. You either rent a PO box or risk losing all your mails. There's not enough manpower and budget to hire postal workers who deliver mails house-to-house :(

I love the metal slot for the mail.

Mail slots in doors are almost a museum piece these days! We have individual mail boxes near the front of the house by the driveway, but country areas have their boxes grouped together usually near a corner!

Mail slots in doors are common in certain parts of the big city here, but as we are rural, we have our own box at the end of the driveway.

I found your meme through Gemma at Greyscale Territory - this looks fun!

I found you for the first time today. This is a great theme! Thanks for being here.

What I perceive is a mail slot that might not have a slot. The Hendersons might not want junk mail to be delivered to their home, so they sealed up the slot?
Interpreting signs is what I enjoy about your meme, Lesley.

interesting theory, Rosi, but I stuck my hand in and it was a real mail slot!
