Mailboxes in Lake Minnetonka, MN, by Jelieta Mariveles-Walinski Ed.D

Can you imagine a more picturesque landscape to deliver the mail? This beautiful location in Lake Minnetonka, MN, is home to lush landscapes, a gorgeous lake, and these terrific rustic mailboxes. The original design for these tunnel-shaped boxes was created in 1915 by postal engineer Roy Joroleman to standardize the more unstable and dysfunctional mailbox designs that scoured the land. 

What do you think mailboxes of the future will look like?
