Wednesday 13 August 1941: early closing day

Very mild; dismal, without a gleam of sunshine. Very rough westerly wind, a few spots of rain. Being early closing** did shopping in the morning. Went to Cannon Hill Common. Walked past the lake; saw optimistic young anglers wielding rod and line.
**Notes: early closing day - when shops shut for half a day, usually on a Wed. When did that practice start - and end?
