    I love stuff like that. Looks like it was a pretty chilly, cloudy day 107 years ago. When I stayed at home in Perth I used to go to the local library to pour over local newspapers from Perth and Dundee that dated back to the 1920's. I would spend ages looking at the old weather reports, particularly the reports from 1947 and 1962/63. I just wish I had access to them now as I know a lot more now, I was just a fledgling weather nerd back then :) !

    Interesting stuff Mr Data.

    Love reading about past weather. Although on a nearer scale, at my parents house we have some of the 1987 deep freeze cuttings. Shall have to dig them out next time I'm there!

    :D

    Yes I love stuff like that too. My mother has a bundle of newspapers, mainly from the Shropshire, Staffordshire area dating back to about 1820 and continuing, intermittantly up to about 1850. I remember, as a child, going through every one and copying, in long hand, every weather related item. I still have them somewhere, must look them out.

    My dad used to keep a daily diary and these had loads of weather entries from the late 1930's, through the 40's and into the 50's, fascinating stuff.
