Post trauma

Unless you live on street level, The Danish Post no longer brings letters to your door. It is one of many moves from The Post to cut costs and improve efficiency. Compared to any other country, the danish post service is one of the most expensive in the world, but even so they suffer, and more cuts are ahead. But the mailbox and -mounting business are not complaining. Rows of identical metal boxes are stacked just inside, or in front of most buildings in Copenhagen, so this exception below really made my heart sing. It is placed on a building in the historical centre, and it is just so simple and understated. I am guessing it is an old gasoline container, cut and painted, mounted with a nail and a piece of string. Perfection.
