“HSS Alarms”, Tower Hamlets: snotty guano

“HSS Alarms Harlow” burglar alarm, Tower Hamlets • Another weeping alarm, dribbling a snotty white trail rather than yesterday’s tears of rust. I found it in a laneway off the Hackney road, but the colours and window grilles are reminiscent of a Hong Kong backstreet circa 1988. The pale streak looks like guano, but may possibly be the only clean patch on the grubby black-painted sweatshop wall. • Spotted: Pundersons Gardens, Tower Hamlets, London, E2, England, 2005 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Bethnal Green and Bow
