Temporary installations of Coinboxes were used in emergencies and were extra coinboxes were needed on a very short term basis.  Today a purpose built trailer would be brought to site and just wired in.  In the past, coinboxes were fitted to any structure that was made on sight.

Temporary phones were used at disasters, exhibitions, crime scenes etc.
