Answer 28 - 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)
