A Cure for the Winter Blues


What with some of the staff trapped in the snowy North (i.e. Oldham), others gridlocked in icy South Manchester, and the weather forecast, according to the Metro,set to be the ‘coldest February since 1986’, those of us who managed to make it in to work today are spending some time brushing up on our wintersport skills. We are particularly taken with The Art of Skating by R. Jones, published around 1825, which is from the Manchester Central Reference Library pamphlet collection, housed at Chetham’s during their renovation. Bring on that ice and snow!
