  1. Police call boxes are a remnant of a time before cell phones. Way back when, they allowed police officers in the field to communicate privately with headquarters without broadcasting over the squad-car radio. Officers would carry a key to the boxes, and when nonpublic communication was necessary, he (they we all male then) would open the nearest call box, take out the phonelike receiver, and speak to the dispatcher.

  2. Jeff Leyser: You are right! This telephone box is at the northeast intersection of Sacramento Street and Hopkins Street. 

    Congratulations on being this week’s winner!

  3. POlice cal boxes used to be all over town. I’m surprised this one still exists, and I’d say it’s on Shattuck opposite LIve Oak Park.

  4. Hey!  One I finally know (I think).  Pretty sure this is at the corner of Sacramento and Hopkins.
