The Box on Cowcaddens Street at its junction with Port Dundas Road, opposite the Buchanan Street Railway Station - E11.

(Note: the only reason it's not being tagged as the Buchanan Street Station Box is to avoid confusion with the Buchanan Street Box - A19.)

From some time in the 1950s --

From some time in the 1970s, after the Box had been removed, to better show the area the Box was located --
