Owens Box:
This mailbox style was the last one used by the Post Office Department that was designed to attach to a pole or a lamppost. The original mailbox design of this style was created by David Owens, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin postmaster. Mail from these boxes was collected by opening the drop bottom section. Although the Post Office Department last purchased this style of mailbox in 1955, some can still be spotted today in areas around the country.
