Unique mailboxes are much more a rural phenomenon in the U.S. than in urban areas. I was delighted to find this frog box on Quaker Lane in the West End.
For those of you not familiar with the U.S. Postal Service, their credo goes something like: “Neither rain nor fog nor dark of night shall keep the postman from the swift completion of his appointed rounds.” According to Bartleby’s Quotations, that is a paraphrase of a quotation from Herodotus around 480 B.C., describing the Persian message carrying system. Pretty clever, those ancient dudes.
Wonderful mailbox and very amusing title.
