“Whenever an unusually hot season is upon us, sweltering humanity talks about the changes in climate and shakes its head in a foreboding fashion.”
London reached 100 degrees on August 9, 1911.
“The day really entitled to the proud distinction of being the hottest of the nineteenth century, in London, was July 28, 1885, when 162 degrees Fahrenheit was registered in the open air. July 7, 1886, 155 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded, the previous day’s reading having been 151.5; the 4th of the same month in the following year it was 151.7, and on August 14, 1876, 147 degrees was registered.”
