If you look at yesterday's image, you can see the pointed end of this post barely sticking into the frame. I assume that when the last resident left, they pulled up the mailbox and dropped it on the porch.

Nice American postbox. Originals are here in Germany rare and expensive.

there is something very final about finding the mailbox thrown on the floor. A fine shot of it.

Nice wood grain patterns and I love the deteriorated/crumbled state of the wood that surrounds the mailbox.

I like the textures and the old wood. The poor mailbox has seen better times.
