Good photo Duffy. That would be a great sign for the collection, a nice focal point.

A couple here shown atop their booths.

In the US that logo was used on Bell  booths that were adjacent to Independent telephone companies.
At least in the SW Bell area.

I remember seeing the square signs on red booths in GTE country.  northern Indiana and southern Michigan had a patchwork of telephone companies.
