May Theme Day: Mailbox


Many Australians live in remote rural locations and often the nearest intersection to a main road becomes a defacto Post Office where country folk can build their mail boxes. 

On the Old Glen Innes Road I came across this tremendous collection of the old and new, conservative and wacky.

On the first day of every month the City Daily Photo community come together and post a photo to a theme. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
