Here is the mailbox that inspired this blog. It was in Columbus, Ohio, on Dublin Road north of Trabue Road - no longer accepting mail, as a new cousin stands across the road. Send in your pictures of rusty mailboxes to join it!

Will says, "Love this one. It is some forty years old. The house it belongs to is less than five years old. The owner said the original house was a govie ( government provided public housing). They loved the letterbox and decided to keep it to reference the history of the area and original house. Apparently a number of people have offered to build them a "more fitting" one, but they have declined, saying that this one is the fitting one. The new house is large, architecturally designed, complex and thoroughly modern. A far cry from what would have been there. I applauded them."

Thanks, Will!
