Policebox paintjob

Posted on Nov 2, 2012


This policebox on The Royal Mile was getting a make over this afternoon. I captured this talented sign writer adding letters to the outside of the now kiosk which stands in front of Starbucks near Festival Square.
The kiosk looked to be selling fizzy drinks and chocolate as well as ghost tours around the old town.

    Hi Peggy, thanks for that – you are absolutely right. I am the one confused – I meant Hunter Square, not Festival Square.

    Confused. Isn’t Festival Square opposite Usher Hall on Lothian Road, not on the High Street?

    I’ve just found THIS link to the recent purchase of the police box above to a millionaire businessman. A condition of the sale was that the box would have to painted a different colour to the iconic police blue. Click HERE for more from the Scotland on Sunday article.
