  2. 18th century frost fair keepsakes up for auction

    18 century frost fair keepsake

    Two scraps of paper which were sold at a River Thames frost fair in 1740 are to go under the hammer today.

    The River Thames used to freeze over during winters from the 16th to the 19th century, because the old London Bridge had narrow arches which slowed the flow of the water.

    Each paper souvenir is expected to reach £1,500 when they are sold at Dominic Winter Auctioneers later today.
