Dalian Notes I - China's Best Letter Boxes



There are many excellent things about Dalian - trams, architecture etc - however without doubt the city has the best letter boxes in China. They've been around for ages and are beautiful and ornate. They still bear the embossed word 'Mailbox' though the post-revolution China Post have slapped their transfer on the boxes for no reason.

This Dalian mailbox was photographed near the city's Russian Street where it looks even more fitting. In most other cities the original old style letter boxes have been removed long ago but they live on rather wonderfully in Dalian. For those of us (few left I recognise) who prefer writing and mailing a letter to typing an email and hitting 'send' these letter boxes are heartwarming making you look forward to that moment when you drop a letter in and know that's it - it's on its way and in the system to end up on a mat somewhere in a few days.

Your operate or strategy may be piece of an overall direction the manager has identified; and there may be folks in the mix. Your strategy may be a spinoff of something the manager has been talking about or a spinoff of a class conversation. They may have properly overlooked who the designer was.
