Oh, to capture just one drop of all the ecstasy that swept that afternoon,
To paint that love upon a white balloon

Barrage balloons were deployed over London late 1938 into 1939. By 1940, there were around 500 of them over the London area, from a total of around 1400.

And if I see the words "London" and "balloon" anywhere near one another I think of "Memory Of A Free Festival" - David Bowie

An image search of barrage balloons is a bountiful harvest and am reminded of Be Bop Deluxe when I look at them .

Found this Dr. Who image from the episode 'Victory of the Daleks' ...
