CDPB Theme for May - Mailbox

Lobby mailbox of the Pythian Building, 423 South Boulder, Tulsa.  It was built in 1929 as the Gillette-Tyrrell Building and sold to the Knights of Pythias in 1933.  It is an excellent example of the streamline "zig-zag" art deco style which was carried out even to the mailbox.  If you are curious there is a nice article HERE.

A City Daily Photo Blog (CDPB) is a blog that publishes a photo each day taken in and around a particular city.  Currently there are 2,202 such blogs.  Tulsa Gentleman is a City Daily Photo Blog for Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The first day of each month there is a theme for all City Daily Photo Blogs.

Wonderful piece of decorative art. When architecture is completely thought through, no detail is left out.

I just love art deco stuff. Especially the decorations.
