“Micromark”, Great Missenden: 1960s sci-fi

“Micromark Security Systems” burglar alarm, Great Missenden • I’ve already featured Micromark in the retrofuturism section, and I now know they’re a defunct DIY option – but I still like their unusual proprietary boxes, which are really 1960s sci-fi. There are quite a few yellow ones around, but this the only white-with-big-black-spot example I’ve seen. • Spotted: Town centre, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, HP16, England, 2007 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Chesham and Amersham
