This Post was on the south corner of the junction of Middlesex Street and Stoney Lane.

OS Maps show that it was resited a few yards southeast along Middlesex Street some time in the mid-1960s, about the same time the Ambulance Post No. 2 was replaced by a PA3 Post.

Extract from the 1959-1970 OS map in 1:1250 Scale showing the original Site of the Post --

Comparison to other maps shows this to be the 1959 portion of the composite map, so is one of the few times an Ambulance Post No. 2 version of the City of London Posts was actually shown on an OS map.

And the 1971-1989, 1:1250 Scale map showing the resited position a few yards away --

This part of Stoney Lane has been closed off and built on during redevelopment, but based on OS map to Decimal Long/Lat to Google Maps conversions, the original Post Site would have been here on Street View (about where the tree on the left is) --
