Group 4, Glasgow, 2007


Group 4, Glasgow, 2007 (photo by John Medley) • This alarm was sent by John Medley in 2014 (though it’s dated 2007 on the image); it’s a type of Group 4 box I never found. He said: “These were around in the 70s I think, later followed by a rectangular version. I’m sure there will be experts reading your site who can shed more light. I saw it in Glasgow on a shop front.” Definitely looks quite old to me.
