Thames Estuary during the winter of 1947
A scene during the great freeze of 1947, one of the harshest winters known in Britain. At Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, a boatman is pictured rescuing his dinghy from the encircling ice which makes the Thames Estuary look more like a Polar landscape. Only by moving their craft every twenty-four hours could boat owners hope to ensure that they would escape damage from ice pressure.
