I work in a building completed in the mid to late 1960s. I’m guessing this alarm was installed around that period too. The rapid, high pitched ringing has been supplemented by sirens, whooping and a voice instructing inhabitants to “evacuate the building”.
I like the fact that this artefact is evidence of the industry that once thrived in the inner west Sydney suburb of Marrickville.

Our school bells were similar to this. Nice shot
That combination would definitely get me out of the building!! Nice that somethings were built to last.
I agree, thank you for commenting Eileen.
