Huge blocks of ice, river Thames

Huge blocks of ice float in the river Thames near London Bridge. In February 1870 the Thames was completely frozen, preventing boats from navigating the river – the flow of the tide broke the ice into large blocks about 2 feet thick. At one point the wind, tide and the weight of the ice caused some ships to break from their moorings, which resulted in serious collisions.
