You've got mail!

New buildings have mailboxes like Excel cells, but old buildings have "character" mailboxes that can tell stories.

In this case, people at unit A tried too hard on mailbox security -- their mail can't even go through the narrow opening, the G/F unit seems to have the opposite attitude; people on 1/F reads the Financial Times, the 2/F occupant has a tax notice, and the 3/F is shared by Riminton and Taguchi...(trust me, I don't spy on mailboxes, I'm just doing this for you!)

I can't seem to be able to log-in with blogger, but wanted to leave a comment just the same. I really love this photo. It shows something basic that not everybody knows how it looks in another country. You could have interchanged yesterday's title for this photo "Everything has its beauty". - MICHAEL

Maybe the people at Unit A don't want any mail - bills would fit through though.

You're not a private detective are you?

Lisi,
Great shot. Very original, a little antique too. I like those mail boxes, even though I prefer the new ones, where you can stuff a lot more things ;)
