“Squire Alarms”, Nottingham: half-timbered

“Squire Alarms” burglar alarm, Nottingham • How perfect is this? An alarm named after a medieval land-holder, sitting on a Tudorbethan clothes emporium for the larger man in the ancient crime hot-spot of Nottingham. And the unusual black-and-white alarm even matches the half-timbered shop (pictured below) – maybe they chose it specially. In the middle ages a squire was a trainee knight, one of whose duties was to hold prisoners, and later the term evolved to mean a local dignitary, often a justice of the peace. All appropriate burglar-alarm-related historical references for Squire Alarms, a substantial Leicester-based company founded in 1981. • Spotted: Upper Parliament Street, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG1, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Nottingham East
