That was followed by what I recall as being the last of the smogs November 1962. At midday , in Willesden NW10 , you couldn't see the front of an Anglia van from the driving seat. I was based in a tv workshop just across the road from the Ace Cafe at Stonebridge Park. One of the nights I walked from Park Royal to my girlfriend's at West Hendon NW4, faster than the traffic was moving, and later walked home to Edgware. About 7 weeks later we got hit by the winter snow across the New Year 1962/63 which lasted until March.
