Police Call Box's 
Washington D.C.
POLICE CALL BOX'S  carry as much historical importance as a Policeman's badge. However some people don't see it this way.  Rather then turn them over to Police Museums or Policeman who may be collectors they turned them over to the public.  I think D.C. would have contributed better to their history by offering them to Police Museums or Officers who are collectors of Police History. They could have even put the offer out at the museums / collectors expense. It is just disheartning  to see Police history turn this way



How they use to be...
How they are looking now...
How they were around the country...
Could be me but these look like bird houses?

This photo is from the " Metropolitan Police of Washington D.C. " face book page. this is a switchboard center for call box's..
Outside the entrance to the Chiefs office are sits this MPDC Call Box
This was on Ebay but I don't think it sold, it is probably the nicest call box I have seen restored.  As wonderful as the old black and white photos are they do not show the truly wonderful display these old call box's gave the city. By far the most beautiful pieces of art on the streets of D.C. To bring them back to their original look would have been awesome.
