The Burglar Alarms of Dublin

The Burglar Alarms of Dublin - Georgian Doorways and Their Burglar Alarms in and Around Dublin's Fitzwilliam Square. "...Yes, the Georgian doorways are charming, especially given that the Georgian facades are otherwise remarkably spare. These buildings could be 20th Century low-rent apartment blocks if not for the massive chimneys and lovely doors. That makes the prominent addition of burglar alarms even more striking, with the alarm boxes typically placed immediately adjacent to the door. One imagines that these accretions came after 1970, when the poster that made the doors famous was first published."
