A while ago The Retirement Chronicles http://myretirementchronicles.blogspot.com/ had a photo contest; with the title of the photo being 'Mailboxes" I didn't have time to enter the contest, but I did give it some thought.
"What could I photograph, that would be a unique photo". I did find something unique and that is particular to Wisconsin.
There has to be millions of this style mailbox along Wisconsin's rural roads!
Simply take an old milk can, fill it with cement, stick a pole in the cement, add the mailbox, and you have a piece of our Wisconsin Heritage.
Post Note: I saw these two within 3/4 of a mile from our cottage.
And that's the way it is................................
