“Property Guard”, Westminster: wonky sentry

“Property Guard” burglar alarm, City of Westminster • This wonky sentry was found next to a dingy net-curtained window in the red light area of Soho, so I won’t speculate what kind of property his red bulb was was guarding. The sounder looks absolutely ancient, and I have no idea if the company still exists; there’s another Property Guard in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, but I doubt it’s the same firm. After a grand total of six, that’s the last “baton” alarm I’ve found – definitely not a popular shape compared to the roughly contemporaneous Eurobell, and I still don’t know what the style is really called. • Spotted: Peter Street, City of Westminster, London, W1, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster

  1. I along with another engineer, Mike Couzens put together the Property Gaurd Kit for the company we were working for, Keycut Services in Stamford Hill circa 1987. We sold a lot of them at the Ideal Home Exhibiton at Earls Court to potential DIY’ers in 1987-1989.
