35mm slide of four children on their sledges going down a snow covered incline. There are two other figures in the background. The slide was taken 16.2.1969. It is believed to be in the trow rocks area of South Shields which is on the coast, however the sea is not visible in this photo, which has been taken looking towards the former quarry site and somewhat inland. The transparency is in an Agfaclolour white plastic mount which is bordered and backed in navy blue.
