“Wheelers”, Southwark: Zulu warrior

“Wheelers Security Systems” burglar alarm, Southwark • If yesterday’s arrow-decorated shield was the sort a knight would use, this is more like a Zulu warrior’s. As well as an arrow and club crossed behind it, there’s a double-headed knotted arrow inside it. What the connection between African arrow overkill and an old-fashioned English name like Wheelers is, I don’t know – I always thought it was a posh fish restaurant. Hmm, maybe it’s a fish, not a shield… • Spotted: Tanner Street, Southwark, London, SE1, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bermondsey and Old Southwark
