This is a fairly recent photo but when would it have been taken?

Thank you to Ian Campbell, Shoreham on Sea, West Sussex, England, for providing this photo of the Police Box on the corner of Montgomery Street and East Montgomery Place. 

On the other side of these railings is the swing park where Ian used to play.  Please click on the link below to read Ian's memories of this swing park and the surrounding district from the time when he lived, as a child in East Thomas Street

Repainting of the
Montgomery Street Police Box

"This photo was taken by Steven Kay in March 2009.

In earlier years, the box had been grey and it had been covered in posters.  However, it was repainted on March 14, 2009 by 'The  Friends of Montgomery Street Park'.

This page on the Leith & North News website has 'before' and 'after' pictures of the Police Box:
