“Kwick Alarms”, Lambeth: kwick kwick slow

“Kwick Alarms Ltd” burglar alarm, Lambeth • I love it when people replace “Qu” with “Kw” (cf Kwik Save, Kwik Fit, etc etc) – it just sounds, erm, kwicker (and cheaper). The logo, font fans, is in Belwe Bold – designed in the 1920s but very popular in the 1970s. 01 equals pre-1990, so this must be a pretty slow alarm by now. • Spotted: Windmill Walk, Lambeth, London, SE1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Vauxhall

  1. Hi. I think I may have mentioned Kwick Alarms before. If my memory serves me correctly, Bromly based Kwick Alarms were aquired and changed there name to PA Alarms. PA Alarms became Ambassdor Security who were then taken over and formed Secom Security.
