A twentieth century illustration of the joy of skating and games on ice as described so memorably by William Wordsworth (1770-1850) in 'The Prelude' (pub. 1850). "It was a time of rapture: clear and loud/The village clock toll'd six; I wheel'd about,/Proud and exulting, like an untired horse,/That cares not for its home.—All shod with steel,/We hiss'd along the polish'd ice, in games/ Confederate". This is one of many lovely vignettes of everyday life in a Benedicite window (1948) by Christopher Webb (1886-1966) in St George of England, Toddington.
