#315: Capitol Hill, E Denny Way at 12th Ave W

315) This is one of the most unique boxes in Seattle. What’s so special about it? Well, to the best of my knowledge, it’s the only mailbox that has been ADDED in recent years. Faithful readers will recall my many mentions of boxes that have been removed from the city landscape, but never before had I learned of one that was new to a location. This bizarre odyssey started a few months ago when Julie alerted me to a box mysteriously appearing in a spot she swore had been vacant the day before. Sure enough, my data did not include an entry for this location, meaning this was the rarest of all mailboxes… a newborn, if you will. When it came time to visit this box, I naturally had to have Julie in the shot with me. And also naturally, she donned her International Detective Woman of Mystery scarf to commemorate her investigative work.
