A mailbox is not just a mailbox. For a lot of our creative islanders, it is an expression. Islanders love of fishing is reflected in their unique mailboxes, which are part of Marco Island’s unique island landscape. You’ll never look at a mailbox the same way again. Mailboxes are becoming relicsof the past, a memento of the “snail-mail” generation. I hope they live forever.
This is just a small portion of the unique mailboxes found on our island paradise. If we missed one in your neighborhood, please feel free to share. An upcoming edition will feature Marco’s Creative Mailboxes, Part II, and more mailbox photos in whimsical, contemporary, nautical, animal and patriotic designs. Enjoy!
