On 6th January 1936 the first Police telephone Boxes, fifty in number, were installed throughout `J' division, a Police district covering a wide area that included Walthamstow, Leyton, Chingford, Wanstead, Woodford, Hackney, Ilford, Chadwell Heath, Loughton and Waltham Abbey.  The boxes were dark blue in colour and so arranged that no-one should have to travel more than half a mile before reaching a telephone or Police box.
