A winter fog descends over London

It's a foggy afternoon in London

There’s a murky fog descending over London, evoking  memories of the notorious pea-soupers that blighted the capital in the post war period.

Above, you can see the top of the St George Wharf Tower (the Vauxhall Tower) rising above the mist.

  1. I remember the 1930s pea souper fogs so thick had to walk with one foot in gutter the other on the curb and stop every few feet to see the number on each house in your own street,. the bus conductors used to walk in front of the bus with a torch to guide the driver slowly along the main streets, when I got home had to blow my nose thick black smoke used to come out. caused by chimney smoke, not enough space to tell you all.
    Those were the days of yore. and as a young lad well remembered by myself. BRIXTON BOY
