Repro ID: H6656
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.
Creator: Dr Joseph Murie
