Redfern, Strawberry Hills, post office (Theme Day: Mailbox)

These mailboxes are located outside the Strawberry Hills post office in the inner city suburb of Redfern. The red Australia Post mailbox is for standard letters and packages sent anywhere in the world, while the gold Express Post mailbox is for mail sent in special Express Post envelopes which for an additional cost are guaranteed next day delivery to certain parts of Australia.

  2. There is a pigeon-pair like this beside the Paddo Post Office, too. But I was too lazy to walk up the hill this arvo and used what I had on file. Probably just as well ... good post, Jim.

  5. Hi Jim
    Ah mailboxes, have spent weeks searching for mailboxes to deposit precious postcards. Thanks for your comments while I have been away. It is great to be back in Grafton and a beautiful May Day

  8. They look a bit like the boxes we have for clothes/books recyling! I wonder if it causes chaos if you post the wrong letter in the wrong box!

  16. Excellent concept. Here in America, the boxes are all the same. I like the Australian way.

  18. There's enough red in this photo to last me for at least a day or two!

    TO LIVE WITHOUT RED

    “To live without red is a sin!”
    She said, with a rubicund grin.
    “A world without red?
    I’d rather be dead!
    No crimson? It shivers my skin!”

  19. Your mailboxes are very neat and colorful. Ours are faded and often completely tagged...A mailbox outside your gate or house only means one thing, and that is protection for your packages. With it, you are assured that no one will be able to steal the stuff that you had delivered even if you are not there to personally receive it.
