    £18.99

    On Boxing Day 1962, when Juliet Nicolson was eight years old, the snow began to fall. It did not stop for ten weeks. It was one of the coldest and harshest winters for 300 years. The drifts in East Sussex reached twenty-three feet. In London, milkmen made deliveries on skis. On Dartmoor 2,000 ponies were buried in the snow, and foxes ate sheep alive. It wasn’t just the weather that was bad. The threat of nuclear war had reached its terrifying height with the recent Cuban Missile Crisis. Unemployment was on the rise, de Gaulle was blocking Britain from joining the European Economic Community, Winston Churchill, still the symbol of Great Britishness, was fading. These shadows hung over a country paralysed by frozen heating oil, burst pipes and power cuts which are explored here.

  • By Eric Watt
    £12.99

    Eric Watt’s photographic legacy reveals how the cityscape has changed in the five decades in which he worked, capturing much of Glasgow’s social history, its citizens and streets. Featuring black and white and colour images, this book has commentary putting the social history of Glasgow into context, alongside captions for each image. It is published to coincide with an exhibition of Eric Watt’s work at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum during 2020/21.
