MailOnline Travel has compiled a collection of snowy snaps from yesteryear showing British winters
Dating between the early 1900's and 1960s, they capture scenes in Welwyn, Oxford and south Wales
In many, Brits appear to be welcoming the freezing snow with open arms excited by its novelty

It is often said that Brits tend to overreact when it comes to snow.
And according to last week's flood of memes and general mockery, this winter season has proved no different.
But peek back into the nation's archives and you'll find Brits - in some cases at least - positively revelling in the white stuff.
One particularly devoted milkman was snapped in 1962 delivering his wares on New Year's Eve by way of skis - poles and all.
Another image sees a duo of nuns having a whale of a time as they fly past on an on-fashioned toboggan.
This collection of wintry shenanigans, assembled by MailOnline Travel, offers a glimpse into how the UK handled its annual dose of snow from the late 19th century onwards.
