Google's Street View has now gone live in the UK, and Glasgow is one of the cities where street level pictures are available, affording some  good views of the Glasgow boxes (with the exception of the Buchannan St box, as it is in a pedestrianised area where the Google camera vehicle could not enter)

The Earl's Court box also appears.

So, everyone, open Google Earth and start looking around! :D

Thanks Teppic! I see from the news today that Google Street View is causing quite a stir - some people are calling it 'Burgle the Street' View..  :P

Anyway, I wonder what other stuff (DW locations maybe?) can be found.

cheers

Fantastic!! thanks for posting that

I wonder when we'll be able to see our own TARDIS builds on Google Earth. In fact if we put them on wheels we could wheel them out when we knew the Street View van was coming round  :D

I've added that one to the list in the board header.

I think there are quite a few in Glasgow, and I'm sure they must have been geo-mapped. If someone can supply the coordinates, I could put a google map here showing all of them.

Thank you and your team for keeping up the faith and the work on these old boxes.

While in Glasgow today i seen two people working on the box with the door being opened my guess as to what they were doing was perhaps carrying out some joinery work on the inside maybe its going to be used as another coffee stall !.
But it was just a police box !
