    Full title reads: "Newcastle-on-Tyne. Chilliest October for a Century! and already 'Kin Winter' has spread his icy - though beautiful - mantle in the North Country." Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Tyne and Wear. Children walk along snow covered road with sledges. Shots of kiddies enjoying riding their sledges down a road with an incline. Shots of boys skidding / sliding along on snow. They all fall over in a big pile. Two men play golf in the snow. They appear to be playing with a lump of coal or a black stone so that they can see it against the snow. Two men look over the Jesmond Dene waterfall - made even more picturesque by the snowfall. N.B. Almost identical shots to those featured in 'Winter's Icy Grip' - 31/87 90,000 historic films, all SEARCHABLE on YouTube at: Join us on Facebook at: Tweet us @britishpathe FILM ID:873.04
