The premises of The Association of Diamond Merchants, Jewellers and Silversmiths Ltd. located in the Strand, London:


Image

The above image is from 1907 and was taken following an attempted 'smash and grab' at the premises, however, the culprit, who was apprehended, was not aware of a clever device that was installed by the firm, that as soon as any pressure was applied to any of the window display fittings, the contents were propelled back into the shop rather than be scattered onto the pavement.
