“InTech Fire & Security”, Tower Hamlets: good omen

“InTech Fire & Security” burglar alarm, Tower Hamlets • Judging by yesterday’s alarm, the tick trope is starting to look like an omen for longevity. Here’s another family firm still apparently going strong after 25 years, though according to the Essex outfit’s inextensive website it looks like they’ve dropped the lively tick. Without its promise of “rightness”,  all that’s left is a connotation of techiness, though I guess InTech may also be a play on In Touch, which I always thought was a Radio 4 programme for the visually impaired (it’s quite good actually). • Spotted: Redchurch Street, Tower Hamlets, London, E2, England, 2007 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Bethnal Green and Bow
