The Friday Postcard From London – 12th August 1919Dear Mr & Mrs Walker,

Dickens once called it “the busiest thoroughfare in the world”. Well it looks pretty sedate in this view. Busier these days with the New Change shopping development on the south side.

This is how Cheapside looked before the “Second Great Fire of London” – one of the fiercest nights of The Blitz, 29th – 30th December 1940.

Best wishes
