I’ve been getting the word out regarding the modbox – Retro Midcentury Modern Mailbox KickStarter campaign. I posted the modbox on the Eichler OC group facebook page. The general consensus appears to be that most Eichler homes have a slot on the wall for mail. However, in some subdivisions (Fair Meadows), many houses have a three sided box attached to the wall above the doorbell.
I asked if anyone could send an image, and much to my surprise, Jeffrey Crussel replied: There are a few “post” boxes that you see here and there in the three neighborhoods, not that many, but this is still fun information.” Jeffrey, I agree!
Then, Jeffrey posted a photo of his neghbor’s mailbox that “Has been at the house for years.” Yes, it looks to be a vintage Leigh Building Products mailbox. A mailbox that inspired the modbox! Very Cool!
