Probably December 1952. It was another 4 years before they brought in the clean air act which meant that only smokeless fuel was allowed in some of the cities. They did not, however, have as many motor vehicles in those days such as they have in Chinese cities today. Conversely the steam trains all burnt some really fillthy coal.
