Police Boxes

Remote Sky Lantern

This remote 'sky lantern' was a blue light to tell the police on duty that they should go to the police box nearby, in High Street, near Hunter Square, to receive a telephone message:

Here, the remote 'sky lantern' can be seen still in place (but not used for many years) above the more recently installed camera on the NE corner of North Bridge and High Street.

Radisson Hotel

In the photo at the top of this page, the building in the background is the Radisson Hotel at 80 High Street.  This was built, in the medieval style, in 1989 on land previously occupied by early-C17 tenements and closes.

The hotel opened as the Scandic Crown then became the Radisson in 2004.

Here is another photo of the same lantern with the Radisson Hotel in the background.
