Seller: myshowcase (39,064) 99.5%, Location: Cannock, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 382280985040 Art Print Circa 1940 The print is 70+ years old " FROST ON THE THAMES " Artist:Samuel Collings [British, known 1784-1789] Image Size: 9 inches x 5.5 inches 22.9 cm x 14 cm Description: This is a 1940 print depicting one of the many River Thames frost fairs that were held on the tideway of the River Thames at London in some winters between the 17th century and early 19th century, during the period known as the Little Ice Age, when the river froze over. During that time the British winter was more severe than now, and the river was wider and slower, further impeded by the medieval Old London Bridge. Even at its peak, in the mid-17th century, the Thames freezing at London was less frequent than modern legend sometimes suggests, never exceeding about one year in ten except for four winters between 1649 and 1666. During the Great Frost of 1683–84, the worst frost recorded in England, the Thames was completely frozen for two months, with the ice reaching a thickness of 11 inches (28 cm) in London. Frost fairs were far more common elsewhere in Europe, for example in the Netherlands. The Thames freezes over more often upstream, beyond the reach of the tide, especially above the weirs, of which Teddington Lock is the lowest. The last great freeze of the higher Thames was in 1962–63. Condition:This 70+ year old Item is rated Very Fine+. No natural defects. No surface rub. No tears. No stains nor water damage.
