Antique Police Call Box

Okay.....so the game last night didn't end the way we hoped, huh????
Lets' move on to happier things, shall we? :-) Like, this antique Police Call Box that N purchased on EBay. It arrived via UPS this afternoon and I think it's pretty darn cool!
This circa 1940's callbox was used in Marblehead MA............Humphrey Street at Atlantic Ave.
Pretty cool, huh?
The police on foot patrols would use these boxes to contact the Police Station. They would have to call usually every half hour to see if there were any calls pending. This of course, was before radios were used.
This is what the interior looks like:

This callbox is a nice addition to the antique police memorobilia that N is collecting. When he buys his own house, he hopes to have a nice room to display his collection.
