Western Electric 325L

Western Electric 325L, is an outdoor encased telephone with 300 series components such as F handset and 101 coil. These were used for police call boxes etc. This particular example has a brass lock and skeleton type key. These phones were also used with a latch on the door, manual (non-dial) models were also available. I'm not sure but guessing the the "L" in the model number signifies lock. These phones used the same dial shroud and daisy face as the early 3 slot payphones.
