|Description: A superb view of St Paul's Cathedral towering over the frozen Thames during the winter of 1895. This was the time of the 'Great Freeze', when the river was paralysed by a long and severe winter. Although the Thames did not freeze over completely as it did in the days of the 'frost fairs', the disruption to normal river traffic was considerable.|
