Old Mail Box

Old Mail Box

We found an old mailbox at the entrance to the Bone Creek Art Gallery in David City, Nebraska.  It was in such good condition that it might have been a replica.

The mailbox was solid cast iron; the lid on the mail slot alone must have weighed a pound or more.  The tube at the bottom for the newspaper was heavy too, at least a 1/4″ thick.  The lock looked like a replacement.  How old do you think this is?

The only thing I know in this photo is five years old.

Thought for the Day:  Nothing echoes like an empty mailbox.                   Charles Schulz
