Helen, you're so right, My grandfather lost two sons and two daughters to TB, it was absolutely rife, early twentieth century, my family were riddled with it, including me, but everyone put it down to milk in those days. I like your version of damp better. I posted on Butcher Row somewhere about the smells and pollution of the area. Some shops smelled real rancid, but great sides of meat were out in the open, some were covered slightly with a thin layer of muslin but it never covered the whole carcass. Few shopkeepers washed their hands between handling things, pat their brylcreemed hair, then handle cheese etc. ''Ugh''

Just come across this view - not sure of a date (possibly 1970?) Rather nice, isn't it! Smile
