The Corner of Drummond Street and Pleasance

Police Box beneath the Flodden Wall

This is one of several former Police Boxes still to be found around the streets of Edinburgh.  It can be found beneath the Flodden Wall on the corner of Drummond Street and Pleasance in Edinburgh's Old Town.

The building in the distance to the right of the Police Box is in Holyrood Road.

Exhibition

Here, Malcolm Irving is using the box to publicise his book 'Edinburgh Police Boxes' and his photos of Police Boxes.  His exhibition was open from 12 noon to 1pm for about ten days from August 9, 2010, during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Malcolm is holding a copy of his book.  Some of his photos of Edinburgh Police Boxes can be seen hanging on the wall inside the Police Box.  All his photos that I saw were close-ups of individual boxes, rather than wider views showing how the boxes fitted into their surroundings.
