Granley Security, Camden: GP

“Granley Security” burglar alarm, Camden • So, now onto a run of venerable Granleys. This is a lovely rather 1930s-looking monogram, and I’m guessing it’s the oldest of the boxes I’ll be featuring (which I’m trying to put in age order). It’s the only one to say GP – meaning Granley Protection, presumably. • Spotted: Tottenham Mews, Camden, London, W1, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Holborn and St Pancras

  1. Hi. The ‘P’ actually stands for Products, as in Granly Products. Granly used to manufacture there own control units, sounders, pressure mats, control units and contacts. There was a link between then and Lou Vales ‘Informer Burglar Alarm’ as he used to sell Granly products. Whilst doing a survey the other day I came across a site with an old Granly TM 16 Control Unit and an RCA Bell.
