It seems that the older box is in better shape than the modern ones...

Fun to see the really old silver and the red old mailboxes!

Sharon said...

I think I like the old one best!

Jack said...

Karl, the older mailbox is superb! It is a shame that it has been replaced by the simpler red ones.

Yes the old one is definitely going to outlast the new one I'd say Karl, it's there for a very long time!

Are the old ones still used? The new ones look like they've been beaten with a stick!
