“Barry Bros”, Camden: back to the 90s

“Barry Bros” burglar alarm, Camden • This is a slightly older version of yesterday’s Barry Bros design, minus the word “security” and with an outmoded 0171 code – very 1990s. The actual sounder is of the same style as yesterday, with the slim square bulb beneath; it’s quite a common type, though I haven’t featured many so far. Other than that there is nothing scintillating to note – I am simply being completist about sounders with eyes on. • Spotted: Covent Garden area, Camden, London, WC2, England, 2004 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Holborn and St Pancras
