“World”, Tower Hamlets: Mercator

“World Security Systems” burglar alarm, Tower Hamlets • Back down to earth from yesterday’s Universal with a plain old world. Like all the other burglar alarm globes featured, this uses the Mercator projection, which isn’t a true representation of the continents’ various sizes. For that you need the Gail-Peters projection, which makes all the landmasses look more skinny. • Spotted: Limehouse Cut, off Broomfield Street, Tower Hamlets, London, E14, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Poplar and Limehouse
