“Sovereign Security”, Bristol: god bless Queen Vic


“Sovereign Security” burglar alarm, Bristol • Nestling on a fine brutalist wall is another Sovereign Security sounder, though I don’t know if it’s the same company as yesterday or the day before. This looks like it dates from some time between those two, yet the design’s totally different – but it seems unlikely there would be two firms with the same name operating in the Bristol area. It’s a much duller design, even if it finally does spell out that SSS stands for Sovereign Security Services (nothing like repeating your name twice in the space of six inches). It was found in aptly regal Victoria Street, which like half the civic projects in England was named after good Queen Vic, which means they’re also named after me.• Spotted: Town centre, Bristol, Avon, BS1, England, 2006 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bristol West
