Number Fifty Two

24Sep09

On the journey up here to Benderloch we had planned to stop off just outside Glasgow to obtain provisions before disappearing into unchartered territory. So after crossing what I assume was the Clyde we decided to continue through to Dumbarton.

Unremarkable indeed – other than after crossing the bridge I noticed the above (unfortunately it was a fleeting glance and I had no camera to hand – but I have managed to find it on Google Street Map). Now I can’t be one hundred percent sure but I think that it’s one of Bruce Martins‘ K8 Telephone Boxes. According to the Twentieth Century Society, which has been running a six month project looking into finding any remaining K8s, there were originally around eleven thousand installed and their (and others) research have found just fifty one left with us.

Make that fifty two ?
