Hyde lake frozen over

There are about forty people and two dogs gathered on the frozen lake at the Hyde to while away the time. Somehow I cannot imagine such an event in the mid-winter taking place today. Fashion dictated that, despite the freezing temperature, all the ladies wore skirts, albeit with stockings. The reverse of this photograph names the two ladies as “C. Weller and Mrs Bill Robinson”. The Large Version shows a close-up of the ladies.
