Is There a Registry of Air Mail Boxes?

Is There a Registry of Air Mail Boxes?

If there isn’t, maybe there should be. I know of 3 such Air Mail boxes, all of which I stumbled across in the wild.

Was there a time when these things were all the rage? I almost want to make one for my own house just because they’re so silly.

This one on Route 8 near Otis, Ma. is one that I’ve passed dozens of times. I finally stopped to snap a picture of the weekend.

I saw this one back in August of 2009 – Route 23 in Hillsdale, NY

And finally in a rather serendipitous twist of fate, while visiting a friend’s new house last summer – their neighbor had an Air Mail box. Perhaps it is a sign that I need one in my life.

Have you ever seen an Air Mail box?

  1. I’ve never seen one of these and, to be honest, I didn’t even know of their existence until you showed them to us. Thanks! Very clever idea.
