Mailboxes don’t get enough respect. Not only are they important tools that connect us to the wider world, but they are also the first thing visitors see when pulling up to a home from the street. Mailboxes tell a story about the people who own them – and of course there are a lot of great stories being told all over Doraville. This post is one in a regular series that looks at mailboxes from all over the city – if you have one that you think should be featured, please leave a comment and I will get in touch with you!
This week’s mailbox comes from Doraville’s Northwoods neighborhood. It gives new meaning to the term “Atomic Ranch”, as its post is a bomb that is partially embedded in the ground! It’s a unique embodiment of one of postwar America’s chief obsessions.
