Pc 859 'Jim' Best taken approx 1945/46 when he was posted in Durham and living in the barracks in Durham City Police office
The Police Traffic Control Box in the Market Place in Durham City.
Notice the step halfway up the box, which officers used, to use to climb into the box as it had no door.
This was later changed as it was deemed undignified for an officer, particularly a WPC,  to climb in & out of the box
