The Terrible London Smog of 1952

I've always been fascinated by this event and I really must ask Dad about it as I'm sure he would've been there at the time (very young, of course ;-)
On the Isle of Dogs, almost surrounded by the Thames, visibility was occasionally reported to be nil – the fog was so dense that people could not see their own feet.
Read the full article over at the Another Nickel In The Machine blog that I discovered on March 11th this year in Christchurch whilst listening to the BBC podcast called (now) Outriders. How so specific, it was my birthday :-)

Those people should be grateful. The feet of Londoners are notoriously unattractive. On the (blessedly few) occasions of my visit to said area I have to make sure that my eyes remain focused on the top of tall buildings.
