Philips Home Security Alarm, Old Coulsdon: villa

“Philips Home Security Alarm” burglar alarm, Old Coulsdon • Funny how towns with “Old” in their name are such fertile ground for old alarms. This, situated on a typical Surrey half-timbered villa, seems a very rare one – it’s the only example I’ve ever come across. And in such good condition! It was found very close, I might add, to the Blitz alarm which originally sparked my interest in documenting burglar alarms (oh, folly). • Spotted: Placehouse Lane, Old Coulsdon, Surrey, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Croydon South
