1 / 30   Air raid siren

An air raid siren on the outside of the 1930s block. This really needs to be rescued before the building is demolished.

  The government were pretty thorough in removing the old public warning system after the Cold War... could this have been a siren for factory use rather than air-raid use?

  Maybe so. I'm not certain. But it's nevertheless a pretty cool device!

  Hell yeah, shame it'll probably end up being destroyed when the place is demolished.

  Luckily I managed to save it. A little negotiation and I purchased it from the demolition crew. But it's going to be a challenge to restore...

  Do you think you got the best price? I mean, did you come away thinking... Fuck, I could have offered less??

  Yes. I started off at £15. Given the effort and time it took them to get it down, I think it was a fair price.
