I'm guessing the O.S. Map is incorrect as the original 1955 Postcard doesn't show a box there?

Not sure Pete what you mean as that 'postcard is a mock-up made by me.

There is no 'original' as such. ( unless you've got one  ;)

No I haven't got V71...Sorry I thought the actual
 postcard was genuine with the Police Box superimposed but at closer look now I realise the whole postcard is a mock up (A good one though!)  ;D

Ha!  That makes 2.  Now that I'm looking for it, I can totally see it, but at first I was like "Wow, that's a really nice photo.  It's so rare to see a photo where the police box is the center of attention instead of photobombing a pub or a bus or something.
