“Anglia Property Guards”, Norwich: not Alan Partridge

“Anglia Property Guards” burglar alarm, Norwich • Strictly speaking this monogram reads AGP, rather than APG, although the G is pretty indecipherable. It’s just as well they spelled the whole name out, or I might have thought it was a reference to Norwich’s finest export, Alan Partridge, aha. It’s such a vintage alarm I wasn’t expecting the firm to exist any more, but they’re still going strong – you can see their current sounder and more legible logo here. Coincidentally they’re based in a place called Banham, which is of course the name of another long-lived burglar alarm firm. • Spotted: Town centre, Norwich, Norfolk, NR1, England, 2007 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Norwich South
