Heriot Row  -  Police Box  -  December 2007  -  (Negative Image)

I felt that the main features of this photo,  the cobbles and the police box,
 stood out  better when this picture was displayed as a  negative image.

Thank you to David Ellis who wrote:

Police Box 19

Heriot Row

"This Notice would have been on display in a frame just above the desk, inside the Police Box at Heriot Row.  It showed the area covered by the box and the streets to be patrolled.

These patrols were known as 'Hourly Turns'.  The Police Officer would endorse the Beat Book to show which turn he was doing.

This Notice dates from 1972."

Police box

This old Police Box stands on the south side of Heriot Row, close to the junction with India Street.

There are now many old Police Boxes around the streets of Edinburgh, but ith today's communications these boxes no longer serve their original purpose.

Most are now closed and locked.  Some have been re-opened as coffee stalls.

The Meadows  -  This is one of several old Edinburgh Police Boxes that have been converted into Coffee Kiosks

"Here is a Notice for this box, Police Box 19 in Heriot Row.

This Notice would have been on display in the box, in a frame just above the small desk.  It showed the area covered by the box and the streets that should be patrolled.

These patrols were known as 'Hourly Turns'.  When leaving the box, the Police Officer would endorse the Beat Book to show which turn he was doing."

More Police Beats

Thank you to David Ellis for sending me another email on 4 February 2016, this time sending me typed sheets that would have been displayed in other Police Boxes in Edinburgh.

The beats that David sent to me are:

-  Beat Box No. 10, St Ninian's Row: Hourly Turns and Half Hourly Turns

-  Beat Box No. 12, West Register Street:  Hourly Turns and Half Hourly Turns

-  Beat Box No. 13, Queen Street: Hourly Turns and Half Hourly Turns

-  Beat Box No. 17, Rose Street:  Hourly Turns and Half Hourly Turns

For some time now, info for the EdinPhoto web site has been reaching me faster than I've been able to cope with it so, unfortunately, I'm not able to add details of these beats to the web site.

However, I've kept David's email, so if you have a particular interest in any of these beats, please email me to let me know, then I'll see if I can send a copy of David's email to you.
