    • I do so agree with you, petal.
      Last night I watched the final of three programmes about the great fire of London, very interesting it was too.
      The houses were built with the higher stories (floors) jutting out further away from the lower floors, to make room for traffic (Horses and pedestrians) to pass by in the very narrow streets. Thus the fire spread so quickly. It started in a baker’s oven in the early hours of the morning, six days later it stopped when they made breaks in the houses by pulling them down and clearing the debris straight away. Apparantly they were just pulling down the houses earlier, without clearing the rubbish that allowed the fire to keep spreading… Oh, I’ve waffled on again. Sorry.
      TTFN and have a cyber cuddle. X

      • That is very interesting, I have heard of the fire, but I had not heard how they solved it. From a modern perspective the debris thing looks like a total fire hazard, but it does also make sense that they would not have seen that so readily back in the day & would have created an added expense that may have seemed frivolous then. I do enjoy the occasional digression ❤
