On a rainy day I started to watch out for fancy and funny letterboxes, that were easy to photograph from my car without been forced to step out into the rain.
And these are some of the letterboxes that I found in and around of Glen Innes, my favorite was the letterbox that was built into an old wine-vat.
In Australia you will still find a lot of such streets that have covered arcades in front of their shops. That is really great in case that it is raining and it is great as well, when the sun is burning down really strong, and all pedestrians can still walk easily in the shade, while doing their shopping.
Hard to believe that some decades ago there was a discussion about taking away these arcades and so I am glad to see that these ones have survived.
