I do like the bow-top boxes. Are you joking, or are the police really still using it (other than for posing for photographs)?

I have been lurking on here for years wanting to join in the search but have never had the time until now.

Nice to see a vintage pic of this box with sign and signal lamp in place.

Seems the market square box was quite long about double the surviving box in Almondbury.

So weird the way the back door of the bus frames the police box. It makes it look like it's been badly photoshopped.

Unusual colour pic of one here built into a trolleybus shelter. Not without precedent however as the same thing was done in York, London, Edinburgh and Grantham.
