Yep, I concur this is the well travelled original Wilson Street box, last seen sitting well camouflaged outside a workshop in Maryhill...

Floppy hat and Drnog you are indeed correct. This was the original Wilson Street Box. Removed from street to be refurbished. It's one of two boxes that I placed on the streets the same day, the other in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow. Keep your eyes peeled as there are two more coming soon! Hope you like them. Kind regards,  Ward

You may be the very nice man I spoke to who was painting the Wilson Street box a slightly darker blue just after it was installed. Can you tell us when the door and sign on this box will be fixed? It's my favourite.  :)

Looks like it has a comparatively narrow base. I've passed this box a few times but not had the chance to visit it just yet.

The latest streetview of that stretch of London Road shows that the box has accumulated a degree of grafitti, and lost the POLICE sign on the left-hand side, so be prepared for it to not be looking its best. :(
