Quote from: exleo on Sep 21, 2010, 02:23 pmWith regards to any differences in the writing of the lintel door signs and the front panel signs, these boxes were all built when long before printed signs would have been used on anything that was an outdoor feature and when sign-writers were still highly skilled and numerous. All signs would have been hand painted and therefore there will be slight differences in positioning or thickness of lettering though thye would have generally been copying a specific font.

As a matter of interest, the telephone in the Crich box when I first encountered it in 1981 was a hanging type, mounted on the left wall. It was not like the wall mounted version of the pyramid phone - I.e wide with a dial, like in pre 80s payphones. It was a simple moulded cradle of a slim type. Almost like a trim phone. No dial. The cradle was dark grey and the ear/mouth piece was dark brown. It had a very 50s/60s look about it, def pre the 70s style receivers we had when I was a lad. The vintage pyramid style phone was not there when the box first arrived.
