THEME DAY--Mailboxes

This is the C.S. Wilke house in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood. It dates from 1898. I love it.

I'll bet the mailman brought the mail directly to their door once-upon-a-time, and didn't place it in the black mailbox to the left of the gate.

I'm still in Seattle for a family issue, which I'm only now beginning to see progress in. So sorry I can't visit you all regularly for the moment. I won't forget you!

What a beautiful house. Can just see people sitting out on this porch putting the world to rights. Glad to hear that progress is being made, Bibi.

What a beautiful old house—and I love that fence. I have "country cousins" who have to go about half a mile to get to their mailbox!

I am glad I found your blog.Although you are not in Belgrade now it is always nice to read how other people experience my city of birth.My family left Serbia for New Zealand when I was 8 years old.I of course have only fond memories of that time.This house is great ..we have here so many of thos return of the century villas and being a young country(150 years) we of course are very protective of all buildings with history in the.Hope things are going ok for you.Cheers
