An old post box, April 1 theme day



I'm now writing at night on 1st, April and I decide to follow the British tradition that gerald england told me: the British tradition is that if I play my joke after midday then I am the fool.

This is an old post box in a museum in Japan and this is out of use. Now only a few old posts are left. This had been used for some decades years ago.

This post reminds me of good old days of the pre-email age and a song, "Please Mr. postman". For me, this also looks like time machine. I wish I could post letter to myself in school age and communicate with myself in my boyhood days by posting letters to this...

Many Daily Photo sites are participating in the 1st April theme, "A Public Mail Box", please use the links to below to visit them. Due to time zone differences and other factors, the theme photo may not be displayed until later if you are viewing early in the day.

Nathalie in Sydney caught us out with hers!

This oldie appears to be in some kind of modern setting -- I love the awning over the opening -- no doubt there to prevent rain and snow entering.

Is it in a museum perhaps? I never hear of that rule for April Fools day Gerald. Very interesting.

It makes me think of a fire hydrant! :)

Very traditional, thanks for visiting that museum.

It looks like a fire hydrant to me. Thanks for showing us the tradition.

A strange design. Bet that lip over the slot made posting letters difficult.
