A mailbox, like a public clock and, indeed, public toilets, are difficult to find unless you know where they are!
In Paria, posting cards back to my grand-daughter, it took me ages to realise that the mailbox was that funny yellow thing often adjacent to a Metro. In France, they are yellow, in Australia they are red.
There is a 'wall' mailbox into the Post Office along Rue de Grenelle that I stumbled upon when a gentlemen slid post into it. I had walked past it nearly every morning.
Here in Australia, we have glorious old English style mail boxes which have been boarded up ... yes! Boarded up. Only to have a pedestrian modern box plonked right beside it. Go figure ...
The two French mailboxes are in Rue de Grenelle and beside the Monceau Metro. The pair of reds are in Bridge Street, Glebe, whereas the boarded up one beside my local grocer, Thomas Dux, is on Glenmore Road, Paddington.
