History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

A Foggy Day in London Town

The famous "London Fog", in actuality, is smog. Early to mid- twentieth century, smoke from millions of chimneys combined with the damp air to hang over the city on a semi-permanent basis. Still, it's pretty, isn't it? 1947. 

Well.... it's pretty in black and white. This is it in colour. 

Truly lovely.
