Rhapsodise About A White Christmas!
‘It is a picturesque sight to lounge in a sybaritic arm-chair, in a warm sitting room and watch the fine feathery flakes as they float fantastically down and beautify the brutal bricks and mortar, to see the gaunt and grimy chimney-stacks grow fairy-like and spectral, and the bare boughs of black trees clothed under a foliage of dazzling white.’
Derbyshire Times and Chesterfield Herald, 5th January 1878
