Daily Photo Theme Day: A Public Mail Box

A Public Mailbox

This type of mailbox is used at apartment complexes. This one was in front of a large house that had been converted into 8 separate units. Each unit gets their own mail key so that their mail stays private and secure!

  1. Helen says:

    Yes, Gerald, I agree.

    Ham, the postman has a key to the lock on the back of the box which open revealing the cubbies for each unit.

  2. Kim says:

    Ah, nice photo of this apartment complex mail center. Gives another nice variation on our theme day.

  3. alice says:

    But there is no name on the boxes, how does the postman do if the sender of the letters forgot to write the number? Maybe my question is a French one, American people must be more organized than me…

  4. Kate says:

    Oh, I was hoping for something adobe; too much to ask, I guess! This is a common means of receiving mail in small town USA or in tourist hot spots.

  5. denton says:

    I had not thought to take a photo like this. You are correct the number 1 box is public while the others are private.

Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
