The signage that appears on the TARDIS is based on various designs of Police boxes from the UK that have been around since the 1920's.  Police boxes were originally designed as communication booths where a policeman could communicate with the Police station.  It had a phone, perhaps a stool and a small shelf desk, first aid kit, lighting and heating. There were paned windows on the top of the box to let light in. There was a hinged panel underneath the windows that allowed access to the telephone which had a direct line to Headquarters.

The signage on the outside of the booth indicating it was a Police Box evolved over the years.In the beginning, the boxes simply stated "Police", then "Police Public Call Box". Over time, a plaque was also included on the outside of the box with instructions and usage for the public as to how to operate the telephone in case of emergencies.
