I've just learned that in New Zealand they call PO Boxes "private bags"! And I was very confused about this address and thought it was a very quaint hamlet name

@xor FWIW, we also have regular old PO Boxes—Private Bags are when you get so much damn mail you need a literal mailbag all to yourself.

@_kb yeah, I knew I was conflating things a little because the page I learned The Truth from had a section on "PO Boxes and Private Bags." But it's such a charming term!
