|Description: In January and February 1895, a severe cold spell created huge ice floes on the Thames. Although the river did not freeze over, the ice played havoc with the workings of the port. This glorious photograph, taken from the south bank at Rotherhithe on February 11, shows the ice in the Pool of London east of Tower Bridge.|
