On this day …….. 10th of July 1901

The intensely cold spell of July 1901 froze Lake Como, off Murdock Rd, and enabled the local youth to try out new winter sport. The thickness of the ice was well able to support the weight of a man, in fact a number of youths jumped up and down on it until it broke. The thickness of ice was discovered to be two and a half inches. Samples were exhibited in the towns shop windows.
