LONDON IN THE SNOW
LONDON IN THE SNOW (Hoxton Mini Press £16.95, 192 pp)
London hasn’t seen much more than grey sludge and sleet for the past few winters. When fluffy white snow blankets much of the UK, Londoners look on with envy.
But it wasn’t always this way, as captured in a delightful collection of vintage photographs taken throughout the past 100 years in the capital, where snowy nostalgia ‘sugar-coats even the most boring activities’.
From an elephant shovelling snow at London Zoo (above), to a milkman making his deliveries on a pair of skis, cigarette in mouth, these delightful pictures encapsulate the wonder that is a city being transformed by snow.
