Drawing Notes:

Our mailbox is an old rural box facing left to the road. It has a handle to open the end of the box. The flag to signal that there is mail to be picked up by the mail person is down indicating that there is no outgoing mail. These boxes were mounted on a cross style post at the end of the driveway.

Drawing Notes:

Our mailbox is an old street box facing right to the sidewalk. The original mail opening would fit a #166 (12” x 11” x 4”) or (30.48 x 27.94 x 10.16 cm) cardboard box.

One volume of a braille book could be put into this box.

For security reasons, these mailboxes no longer accept anything thicker than a letter.
