“Expo” burglar alarm, Islington • Yet another gun-sight crosshair – very James Bond. Not, presumably, named after the Stockhausen composition for three shortwave radios. Tomorrow: monograms. • Spotted: York Way, Islington, London, N1, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Islington South and Finsbury

  1. In the late 1960s an alarm company opened in Shaw Street Liverpool, they too were called EXPO. it was formed by ex police officers who also provided a “boarding-up” service and static guards. I am not 100% sure but I think the original alarm company’s name was “Atlas” prior to being acquired by Expo.

    • I have an elderly Atlas sounder, found in Manchester, so maybe the firm you mention. It will be cropping up in a later installment of Monograms.
