The Box at Alexandra Cross outside of Duke Street Station - C1.

A photo from 1954 showing a Tram exiting Cumbernauld Road onto Duke Street --

I'm not absolutely certain the Box is visible in this photo, but per the Glasgow List description and the OS Maps, it should be right about here --

Peaking out from behind the billboard it kind of looks a bit like one of these (this one at St Enoch Square/Station) --
