The one above is by far the most charming letterbox I know, and I am happy to show a repeat of the image of January 26. This quirky letterbox at 452 Huia Road, Laingholm, inspired the good people at Kaipara Coast Plant Centre & Sculpture Gardens in Kaukapakapa, to run a design competition for weird and wonderful letterboxes. Long after I had first noticed (and photographed) this ferrocement letterbox, it turned out that Iain Cathcart had designed and built it, and that his mother lives near us. Small world, as they say.

Not to be accused of downright lazyness for recycling an old image, I add another mailbox which I found in Wood Bay, Titirangi.
