“Panther”, Reigate: Countdown

“Panther” burglar alarm, Reigate • Not quite as impressive a design as yesterday’s stencilled panther, though it does fall into the popular category of “vision”, which I have yet to explore on this blog. For years I had a photo of a rectangular version of this alarm reading “ANTHER”, because the left side was obscured; I couldn’t work out what the name meant, and it only recently dawned on me that there was a letter “P” in the eye, and so the full word must be Panther. Then the other month I stumbled across this, proving myself correct.
