Mailboxes that spruce it up

It’s time to open hostilities against the ubiquitous black wall-mounted metal boxes that sully the front of so many homes. After all, Canada Post is hitting a fever pitch delivering Christmas cards and presents. Let’s receive them in style.

Some neighbours take a stand. Their choices of oddball, homemade and hand-painted mailboxes add a refreshing flavour to the street. They’ve jazzed it up for the letter carrier. The mailbox usually occupies a high-profile piece of front siding. May as well make it glow.

Photos were taken, from the top, on North, Charles and Black streets.
