My wife and I have this debate. She is happy with a postal delivery person carrying our mail to the box right by our front door. I am happy for the march of progress. I wouldn’t mind if one of the newer mailbox sheds (or whatever they are called) replaced the individual boxes in our neighborhood. I understand and appreciate the efficiency they represent, particularly in light of how the US postal system is getting in deeper debt every day. Also, the “sheds” offer better security (not that we’ve ever had anything stolen from our box — at least to my knowledge). I do admit to their complete lack of romance and beauty.
Heather likes the convenience of delivery to our front door.
Which do you prefer?
I took these photos in rural Colorado. I thought it was interesting to see the old and new side by side.
