Wartime London

Empty streets compared with now,most vehicles were vans or taxis as petrol was rationed except for those on official duties.
Buses during daytime turned up every five minutes so travel in the city was easy though the tubes always seemed to be busy and packed.No lights allowed apart from shaded ones on traffic which made the roads dangerous to be on. Towards the end of the war the lights were allowed back on and crowds took to the streets to see them.I remember gazing with wonder at the first floodlit buildings.
