Creative mailboxes have been a great way to differentiate oneself from the rest of the neighborhood. They are also great in giving the mailman or woman a good laugh on their daily route.
Mailboxes have been adapted into everything from houses to idolized characters. Modern mailboxes are more compact and functional. Some even serve more than just accepting and holding mail by accommodating flowers along with other multitasking purposes.
It is of curiosity whether the mailbox will become completely obsolete over the upcoming century. The use of such has diminished significantly over the past 20 years with the arrival of email and text messaging.
No matter the fate, one thing creative mailboxes will always be useful for is providing users and onlookers with entertainment: even if only by historical photographs.
