Ullswater 55 years ago

in Cumbria, Lakes, Photographs, Ullswater

Yesterday I mentioned an excellent Winter Breaks deal at the Leeming House, overlooking Ullswater. (Later note added: This was a time-limited offer in late-2010, but click here for up-to-date details of this very nice hotel).

Today, though, I thought I’d put up a black and white photo of Ullswater from Purse Point – fifty-five years ago.  It’s from the Francis Frith collection which includes a remarkable range of photos of Lake District places, many going back into 19th century.  Click on the picture to look for more.
