    Default Sefton Park, 1890s

    The scene is little changed today – although the boat house has been replaced by an impressive modern cafeŽ.I need a clothing expert to date these three photographs.

    The coldest winters fell on December 1878, and January 1879.

    I'm getting closer.

    Great pics Colin.

    The middle photo looks like a Lowry painting and is that Charlie Chaplin in the last pic?

    Deffo middle to upper class if you can afford proper ice skates like the lad in the last pic.

    For the record. I was reading 'The offical history book'.

    You'd be surprised, or maybe not.

    ANCIENT (1890s)...
    Even if it were cold enough now to venture on to the lake, I'm thinking it's doubtful whether it would get past that Elfin Safety lot...
