London on the Web – Wonderful Photo Discovery!

Nelson's_Column_the_Great_Smog_1952

 

This fabulous photo of Nelson’s Column was taken by NT  Stobbs in December 1952, and shows the ‘great smog’, or ‘Big Smoke’ of that year.  It is part of an excellent web project called ‘Geograph’ to collect photos covering the whole of Britain and Ireland.  So far the site has amassed nearly 3 1/2 million images, with London one of the most popular areas covered.  You can search by area or by date and the site throws up some weird and wonderful images, as well as those that tell a great story like the one above.
