P26 was re-sited - to here ? ( removed 11th June 1970 ) ( P18 not listed as re-sited )

I was sent a shot by peterjohn ( hope he posts it here ) of something outside West Wickham library that I didn't think
was a box but I've found an 8mm film of an unknown Mk5

Amazing That YouTube Video is of Box P26 High Street, West Wickham (resited) [1968]
The second shot (1:32) is the same box at it's original Location!
But I can't find any evidence of a box outside West Wickham Library but it is definitely a Mk5...Isn't  it?West Wickham Library.jpg  :-\

Yes it is a MK5. You can see in the video, the Ford Anglia Panda Car drives right past the library. its the same box as your photo above.

I don't see any shots of a box at P26 original location.

Glebe Way was modified around 1956

Original P26

What a wonderful Film dr hue...Not just the Patched up Police Box but the whole 1968 Scene!
It's hard to believe even all those Schoolgirls are now OAP's!  ;D
The question is...I wonder if there are anymore Gems hidden away on London's Screen Archive?
