Thames Estuary during the winter of 1947

A scene during the great freeze of 1947, one of the harshest winters known in Britain. At Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, a boatman is pictured rescuing his dinghy from the encircling ice which makes the Thames Estuary look more like a Polar landscape. Only by moving their craft every twenty-four hours could boat owners hope to ensure that they would escape damage from ice pressure

Frost Fair by Jan Griffier the Elder Featured Print

Frost Fair by Jan Griffier the Elder

The famous Frost Fair taking place on the frozen River Thames in London in 1683. Freezing to around eleven inches thick, the ice was strong enough to hold shops, stalls, coaches and sleds. The diarist John Evelyn describes bull-baiting, horse-and-coach races, puppet plays and tippling shops. In this painting by Jan Griffier the Elder, Westminster Abbey and Whitehall can be seen on the left and Lambeth Palace on the right. Date: 1683
