Out of the Fog

From the Sydney Morning Herald on this day in 1948:

Fog Lifts, 
London Sees Sun


LONDON, Dec. 1 - The fog blanket began to lift from north-west Europe early this afternoon--the eighth day of heavy fog conditions.

The sun broke through in London after the thickest night and morning since the fog began.

The three Atlantic liners, Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary, and Aquitania, left their Southampton berths in bright sunshine, and ships began to move in the Scheldt and Thames Estuaries.

The Berlin air-lift also resumed to-day.
