A Mailbox Theme Day


Here's a lovely example of a mailbox in a wall -- and yes, it is an old British mailbox put up during the reign of Edward VII, but painted green instead of red. Most of the old public mailboxes in the Republic are like that -- occasionally you can even see the red underneath the chipping green paint. :)


Loads of others are participating in the 1 April theme "A Public Mailbox." Check 'em out and remember that due to time zone differences and other factors, the theme photo may not be displayed until later if you are viewing early in the day:

It is nice to see a green mailbox ... However I think placing a mailbox in a wall is a little extreme. To me it says, I'm going to be here forever and never change.

Ah refreshing green!

Finally! Not red or yellow (and not R2D2). Brilliant!

Eric said...

It wouldn't be Ireland if it wasn't green...so a nice pleasant change from all the red, yellow, and R2D2's.

This one looks like it is talking to us.

I love this - your national identity coming out strongly! :) It makes me think - perhaps I should start a campaign to paint our South African postboxes 7 different colours, as a symbol of our "Rainbow Nation".

If it's green it is Irish. Lovely photo.

Chris & Deb said...

Looks like that box has been around a loooooong time!

Sally said...

That's fantastic! And I just adore wall mailboxes - too photos of quite a few in UK!

Green? In Ireland? Really? ;) Just kidding. It's actually a relief to see that the mailbox is anything but red :)

It is extremely interesting for me to read this post. Thanx for it. I like such themes and everything that is connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more on that blog soon.

Perhaps the worst thing about going away for 30 days is that when you return,
there's 30 days worth of things to catch up on. For parents, though, video Rango The Video Game aren't
necessarily so familiar. It's the night before the Olympic anniversary event.
