Alan Waddell's arty letterboxes

Alan Waddell has been described by a former Australian Health Minister as a legend. Others have named him a grandfather who has achieved cult fame and the North Shore's most famous athlete.

Alan, aged 93, has walked 264 of Sydney's 637 suburbs. On his way he takes photos of interesting things he comes across. That includes letterboxes.

His website, www.walksydneystreets.net includes a section on letter boxes. The photos below only are a small selection; lots more images can be found on the Walk Sydney Streets website.
