Let’s cool off with a snowy photograph of a young lady freezing whilst at work, because you can’t keep the customers waiting!
Highfield Lane 1946, where Highfield Avenue changed its name to Lane at its junction with Highfield Road. Lovers Walk follows the line of trees to the right.
This photograph, of a Lowman’s delivery cart, was taken during the severe winter of 1946-7, when freezing temperatures and snow created some of the worst conditions on record.
