Dragon-Lady with incredible figure at 11 o'clock!..

Because of the extreme heat, working patterns changed in Lancashire, with work beginning at dawn, around 4:30am and finishing around midday, to avoid the hottest part of the day in the quarrying industry there. Fatalities became common and newspapers such as The Times ran Deaths by heat columns as temperatures continued to rise..

The heat also caused indirect deaths, by melting the asphalt on roads, causing numerous accidents..By August, wells, water pumps and water supplies had begun to run completely dry..Also in August, striking became common, most notably in the Victoria and Albert Docks, where the entire workforce of 5000 people walked out, because of the intolerable heat, meaning the whole area came to a standstill..The heat wave and drought only ended on 11 September when average temperatures dropped by 20 degrees Fahrenheit (6.6C) and the high pressure dominating the country receded, allowing rain over all parts of the country...
