Glasgow Police Boxes

Hi All,

Glasgow (apart from London) was the only City to have "Dr Who-Style" Police Boxes.
I'm trying to collect as many photos (preferably Colour!) of the 320 or so boxes that existed between 1930's-1990's
(the 4 remaining boxes have been converted into Ice Cream/Coffee Kiosks!)
If anybody has any please could you post on here (or email me)

Many Thanks!

Pete

Have you tried contacting Glasgows Police Museum? They have a very old one discovered burried in a wall.

It was a coffee kiosk for a while but didn't last long.

Thought there was a plan in place to return them to the original red, Though no doubt the fans of Dr Who would have raised a wee petition to keep them blue.

there used to be a blue police box at paisley road toll at the angel building and there was a larger red  one on stanley street next to the swing park it had a door you pulled open and there was a speaker grill to summon the police or fire brigade or ambulance
