Mailboxes From Around The World

When is the last time you sent a letter to a loved one the old fashioned way? To give you some inspiration here is a small selection of mailboxes from around the world.

This whimsical winged piece of art calls Santa Fe, New Mexico home.


This bright red mailbox was on a stilt house in the fishing village of Tai O on Launtau Island, Hong Kong China.


Photographed in the former Jewish Ghetto in Rome, Italy this antiquity certainly wasn’t meant to have bulky junk mail deposited in it.


May you come home today to find a letter or postcard in your mailbox (or letter or postbox depending on your corner of the world) from someone with whom you’ve meant to get in touch.

What a great subject for a coffee table book...imagine how you could weave in the "best" letter ever received in that box?

Wanderlust Woman,
That's a really nice idea.

beautiful images. it makes you wonder what equally beautiful letters have waited to be read in there. i remember at my college we had pigeonholes and because we could all glimpse into each others' it meant that some of the most interesting letters, cryptic notes and little gifts were flying around. what's the 'best' letter you've received in the post?

Also because the sign says: "donate for the orphans."
