Photograph of boy mailing a letter

Description:

Young boy does his best to put his letters into a Doremus-style mailbox. Mailboxes of this type, designed by Willard D. Doremus, were not very strong. The lip covering the letter slot could too easily break, letting rain, or in this case, snow, into the mailbox.
