a mailbox with a red flag:
The home owner signals the mailman by that there is mail in the container to be
mailed. Then, the mailman will stop
to pick up your mail even if you are not getting mail delivered. In
the past, the time when cars were not popular, this system was especially
important for those living outside the city since this was the only convenient
way to send mail.
Other mailboxes here: There
are mailboxes without red flags outside. You
can see a locking one that is connected with others, one little section is for
each household; for example, you can find this kind of mailbox in your
apartment. Other houses have mailboxes right on their doors, so the mail is
delivered right into the house through the slot. (112402)
