This fascinating study of the history of mailboxes reveals the ingenuity and tenacity that have characterized the search for the perfect mailbox - a high quality, weather-resistant object that protects its precious postal contents. Heavily illustrated with mailboxes from the Canadian Postal Museum's extensive collection, this book illustrates the evolution of his most modern of pieces of urban street furniture, from the early cast-iron pillar boxes inspired by British models to fibreglass mailboxes and contemporary high-tech models.
