“Bluebird Security Systems”, Westminster: harmless

“Bluebird Security Systems” burglar alarm, City of Westminster • Following yesterday’s kingfisher, another photorealistic bird. But you won’t find a real-life bluebird living wild in the UK, as it’s a North American native – an attractive, harmless and beloved creature, regarded sentimentally in the US much as the British view robin redbreast. As such, it’s a peculiar choice for a security system; but the charming word Bluebird has been used to title everything from lethal speedboats to school buses to swanky cafes, so it seems fair enough to allow burglar alarms onto that list. • Spotted: Little Portland Street, City of Westminster, London, W1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster
