Petersfield Museum’s extensive photographic archive holds over 100,000 photographs of life in Petersfield and the surrounding villages.

Dating as far back as the Victorian period, these photographs represent all areas of life in Petersfield and act as a window into town life in days gone by.

This festive scene was taken on Petersfield Heath when the pond froze over, possibly during the winter of 1962-63.

Do you know who is in the picture? Do you remember when the pond froze over?

Are you one of the smiling skaters? Then we would love to hear from you.
