Christmas 1894: Frozen River Thames


It's hard to imagine these days but in our recent history, most of the fast flowing rivers around the UK would completely freeze over in the winter months. Not only did this stop alot of the boats going up and down them it would mean a welcome activity for families and kids to play on the ice. Here was can see the Thames in 1894, exact spot unknown but one can speculate by the amount of people not far from London suburb. Even the dog seems to be having a good time.
