Nameless “Alert” alarm, Southwark, 2010

Nameless burglar alarm, Southwark • And finally under the somewhat half-baked “Rust” theme, another possible non-burglar-alarm. However the very tiny writing on the label says “ALERT” something, so who knows. It’s on a brilliant building, the Kircaldy Testing Museum, which in Victorian days was an engineering workshop performing materials stress tests for giant cast iron bridges etc. • Spotted: Southwark Street, Southwark, London, SE1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Liberal Democrat constituency of Bermondsey and Old Southwark

  1. You can tell that this is an electronic unit because it has the old information tag on the outside which displays power information. The sides of it are vented to allow air into it but I think this is a good deterrent as it looks so close to a burglar alarm
