River Severn frozen - rare archive photos from 1895

Archive photos owned by a Worcestershire man show the River Severn frozen enough for people to walk on it.


The photos, owned by John Hinton from Kidderminster, are in an old form of 3D known as stereoscope.
They date back to 1895, when temperatures in Worcestershire fell low enough to completely freeze the river.
They are part of a larger collection of photographs showing life in Worcestershire in the 19th century.
