Frost Fairs

By a strange coincidence, only yesterday I posted a painting by Hendrick Avercamp showing golfers playing on a frozen river (scroll down or CLICK). Today I found out that the Museum of London Docklands is opening Frozen Thames: Frost Fair 1684 tomorrow. This is a free display of paintings, engravings, souvenirs and items from the great freezing of the River Thames in London in the winter of 1683/84 (CLICK). Shown is Abraham Hondius' A Frost Fair on the Thames at Temple Stairs (1684).
