Letter boxes/mailboxes

Here are some more letter boxes from Tunis.  I suppose what puzzles me about them, is that they do not appear to be very functional.  The space where letters are posted is quite narrow and does not allow for large envelopes, parcels or magazines but this does not seem to deter people from using them.  It is as if they are willing to overlook the primary purpose of letter boxes and favour these ornate and decorative letter boxes instead at the expense of functionality.  Still, this is not intended to be a criticism but a mere observation.
