“Scaff Guard”, Kensington: a very gory bulldog

Scaff Guard Ltd burglar alarm“Scaff Guard Ltd” burglar alarm, City of Westminster, 2010 • The word slavering could have been invented for this comically rabid beast, my final Tory dog for now. Appropriately for such a hammy performer, I found him by the Royal Albert Hall on Kensington Gore (which is also the name of a famous make of stage blood, as seen in Hammer Horror films). He wasn’t even protecting a house – just some scaffolding. And there wasn’t a real guard dog in sight. • Spotted: Kensington Gore, City of Westminster, London SW7, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster
