From the May 11, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1966, 50 Years Ago.
"May is the month to make mailbozes look like mailboxes. A long winter of rough weather, the bumps of snow plows, and rough handling of heavy mail reception has all played its part in making the mailbox look like it has had it.
"The Post Office department has designated the month of May as Mailbox Improvement Month."
