Putting Wrong Things Right during the Queen’s reign London Mums magazine

It is often hard to see the overview of progress of an era while you live in that time. I find all reads fascinating that give you an objective analysis of the changes of your environment. A new book Putting Wrong Things Right published by environmental organisation is marking 60 years of improvement during the Queen’s reign highlighting with great photographs and stats records of the London smog, the Aberfan disaster, outbreaks of smallpox and typhoid, the BSE crisis, and how the nation’s life has been improved.
