#117, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California
Carmel-by-the-Sea is the only decent-sized town in America - to my knowledge - to have the peculiar affliction of no house numbers. Mail arrives to its inhabitants on last names and cross streets alone, on a wing and a prayer as they say, and hopefully in the hands of a competent postal service employee. So what's a number aficionado to do, let loose on these mean, anarchic, un-numbered streets? Why, look harder at everything else, of course.
The postal bugle is one of those long-standing images that has a comforting universality. I've spotted the symbol elsewhere in my wanderings (in Dublin - though minus the crown, naturally) and love the simplicity of the image. And the bright red's a nice touch as well.
