Fire of London

Active selection in cart:
The Great Fire of London. "Alle the skie," wrote John Evelyn, the diarist, "were of a fiery aspect and the light seen about 40 miles." Samuel Pepys was up "by break of day to get away the remainder of my things…Sir William Batten, not knowing how to remove his wine, did dig a pit in the garden." Far right: A cause of great alarm was the movement of the fire towards the Tower of London. Original artwork for the illustrations on p26 of L&L issue no. 244 (17 September 1966).
