“Hoffman Security PLC”, Hounslow: cracking up

“Hoffman Security PLC” burglar alarm, Hounslow • Another alarm I’ve already featured in close-up (see WWII), but whose surroundings also deserve an airing. Nothing spectacular: just a subtle colour combination of faded pink, green and cream. Everything’s cracking and falling apart, and even the ‘g’ has peeled off the sign. But that’s sleepy Chiswick Mall for you (it’s a demure riverside walk – not the kind of mall they have in America, or even Brent Cross). • Spotted: Chiswick Mall, Hounslow, London, W4, England, 2006 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Brentford and Isleworth
