Manchester Evening News - - NOSTALGIA -

JAN­UARY 17: Chil­dren from St Luke’s Pri­mary School in Manch­ester are hav­ing a ball sledg­ing and play­ing in a batch of freshly fallen snow.

The young­sters had been sav­ing three-pence a week to pay for a pic­nic in the win­ter coun­try­side. Teacher Miss Ethel Parkin­son or­gan­ised the trip.

It was the first time many of the chil­dren had seen proper snow as it soon be­came dirty and turned to slush on Manch­ester’s in­ner city streets, par­tic­u­larly when the fog and smog came down.
