Modern Alarms, Camden, 2004

“Modern Alarms” burglar alarm, Camden • I’m not sure if this is faded from yellow, or whether Modern actually did have some beige bell boxes. • Spotted: Covent Garden area, Camden, London, WC2, England, 2004 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Holborn and St Pancras
