Postie's Delight by Anne van Alkemade

Canvas Prints

Small (10.7" x 8.0")

Available to buy on…

These letter boxes sit on their volcanic rocky bench on a road just out of Bacchus Marsh. Built by one of the residents of small group of farmlets, they are fun, quirky replicas of bathing boxes at Brighton Beach in Melbourne (and no doubt other beaches around the world).

I had taken a photo of these boxes before (a very popular selling card for me) but I heard on the grapevine that they have a new coat of paint and so they do look much brighter and happier. It’s nice to know that the owners of these boxes like to keep them looking nice.

    happy little pappy boxes! :-)

    I’d collect mail boxes if it wasn’t illegal… There’s some really quirky ones around here in N.Z. too, maybe I should play it safe and collect photographs of them instead…

    psst… pick out a bridesmaid outfit and I’ll virtually buy it for you. ;-)

  • Hey Jen
    If you do get letterbox photos, make sure you pop them in the Snail Mail group!!!
    Now, I’m going vitual shopping for that outfit. Yay, I am honoured.

    Ooh… I don’t do groups Anne, but there’s some really quirky ones not too far from me near Piha beach, when the weather clears… And as for the big day… Well, almost anything goes I guess. ;-)

    These are so cool Anne, a nice bright and cherry place to collect the mail.

  • They really are a traffic stopper, Cathryn. First time I saw them, my friend was driving and I yelled at her “stop stop”. She freaked and thought there was something wrong. LOL.
