An Edinburgh police box with original interior fittings, commissioned in May 1933 as one of about a hundred produced to the 1929 design of City Architect Ebenezer James Mac Rae. The police boxes were designed to fulfil a modern, practical and technical function, whilst being styled to fit in with the city’s existing architecture. The police box will be dressed with 1930s/1940s props to illustrate how it was used.
