Ex-alarm, Southwark: skeletons and ghosts

Ex-burglar alarm, Southwark • Ex-burglar alarms come in two forms: ghosts, where they’ve gone completely, leaving just a patch on the wall; and skeletons, where some of the casing remains. For the next five days I’m going to focus on the latter – and maybe some of the experts out there will be able to discern what model they were when intact (not that it will mean much to me). First up, a very anonymous metal backing plate from an office building in Southwark, with no identifying features other than random holes. • Spotted: King’s Bench Street, Southwark, London, SE1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bermondsey and Old Southwark
