Casa, St Catharine’s Close, Bath, Avon, 2013 (photo by Stuart Feltham) • As already stated, my daily alarms are soon coming to an end (though I will still add some […]
Eclipse Alarms, Queen Street, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX1, England, 2012 • Reverse colourway here.
Solar Security, High Street, Beckenham, Kent, BR3, England, 2010 • Similar but with an ex-strobe (or something) on here.
“Eclipse Alarms” burglar alarm, Coventry • I’ve already published some other Eclipses here, though not with circles (ie moon in front of sun) on. Though technically, this is only illustrating […]
“Shorrock” burglar alarm, Bristol • And here’s the final, rather mossy, incarnation of the “tupperware” box, as a Shorrock. You still see quite a few of these around, so I’m […]
"Eclipse Alarms" burglar alarm, Stratford-upon-Avon • Another Eclipse alarm, which unlike yesterday's has the logo printed onto the bell box. Little else to say about this other than it's very dull, albeit using the classic machine age font Dynamo, orignally deigned by K. Sommer in 1930. • Spotted: Meer Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Stratford-on-Avon
"Eclipse Alarms" burglar alarm, Stratford-upon-Avon • A painstaking but badly cut-out collage job: someone's printed the logo onto a label, then stuck it piece by piece onto this old Eurobell. There's even a sooty black eclipse image at the top, though it looks more like a bulb has fallen off. • Spotted: Ely Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Stratford-on-Avon
"Padley Security" burglar alarm, Brighton • This is a bit odd, as the name seems to have nothing to do with the sun. Maybe the image is meant to be a blaring bell, or a flashing light. Or maybe it's just a celebration of the sunniness of Brighton. • Spotted: Queens Road, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1, England, 2010 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Brighton Kemptown
"Solar Security" burglar alarm, City of Westminster • Nice bold old-school type plus giant screws, and it looks like the bulb has fallen off (as I doubt that's a vintage solar cell). • Spotted: Henrietta Street, City of Westminster, London, WC2, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Conservative constituency of Cities of London and Westminster
