The Winter of 1962/63

That winter, the snow started on Boxing Day 1962 and the big freeze lasted until March 1963. Blizzards caused snowdrifts up to six metres deep, telephone lines were brought down and temperatures fell so low the sea froze over. Roads faced similar disruption in 1963, but former policeman Tom Taylor, 68, from Gloucester, said the biggest problem was not a lack of grit - but a relentless, blustering wind.

Pea souper that killed 12,000: So black you couldn't see the screen in cinemas. So suffocatingly lethal they ran out of coffins. How the Great Smog choked London 60 years ago this week

A thick, greasy, grimy fog - known as the Great Smog of London - descended on the city during a particularly cold December in 1952 and killed 12,000 people in four days.

The Lion and Albert 2

I thought you might enjoy some extracts from this lovely book which was one of my favourites as a child. My dad was from Lancashire and this is packed full of lovely Lancashire sterotypes and is hilarious if read in a Lancashire accent. The original poems/stories used to be read on the radio "wireless" by Stanley Holloway a comedian who may be remembered as playing Eliza Dolittle's father in the movie "My Fair Lady" a funny guy. The illustrations by John Hassal are superb.
