Another red letter box and gate from neighborhood

Perhaps, you all know my love for red letter box which used to be my favorite thing from childhood. My neighborhood has many houses with letter box to drag my attention towards their gate and they aren't quite red and I also find some milk boxes similar to letter boxes but in blue.

Following my previous post on the red letter box, I received few calls from the friends to send my address in regard receiving a card as intention of love and harmony. I really feel gratitude for their sweet gesture and taking time to make a handy note sense touch. While the technology has reached a height unimagined, receiving card through post feels quite nostalgic!

The red letter box in picture above belongs to the neighbor opposite to our house. Since we are 10 months old to this area, though it isn't new for us being a native to same, they are the only family (of four) to share few words and exchange smiles occasionally. They have been a resident of this area for more than 20 years and the letter box is hanged to the gate in front of their doorstep.

To add an additional gate image to the post, I link to Run a Round Ranch’s Good Fences, is the aluminium plated gate (of the same house) that enclose their car park.

It is great to see the style of the buildings in your country along with the colors on things. Red mailbox is good for everyone to see. I think red boxes over here were phones in order to call a fireman.

The red mailbox is neat looking. That aluminum gate is a first for me, I've never seen one like that.

The gate is an important part of a home in India or at least used to be. It kept unwanted traffic out.

Nice photo of the gate and the mailbox, Jeevan.

May you get many more letter in the post!

Have a Beautiful Day!

Peace :)
