In the cities of Great Britain, I have seen these little houses painted in blue, several times. In the twentieth century, they allowed calling the police directly. The police also used them to keep in touch with their brigade, fill out a report or store first aid kits.
With mobile phones, the “police box” has lost its usefulness. But the people of Glasgow are still attached to it. And I understand them! This one is very convenient for buying a takeaway coffee.
In addition, if you are a fan like me of the British science fiction series Doctor Who, you cannot walk past a police box without smiling. As it happens, this salesman might be the reincarnation of Dr. Who aboard the Tardis!
