Picture this: a new display of seasonal photos drawn from the cavernous Hulton Getty archives, complete with shopping opportunities, and all in time for Christmas. The chosen images in the "A Winter's Tale" exhibition include snow patterns in Alaska; Canadian skiers dwarfed by the Rockies; shadows and silhouettes of Swiss skaters on ice; Rene Accola ski-jumping above a mountainside in the 1923 Olympics and Skaters on Whitestone Pond, Hampstead Heath, 26 January 1933 (above). All the pictures are on show in this, only Hulton Getty's second exhibition, from Wednesday. And while you can just go and look, original shoppers will be pleased to find that prints of all the photographs are for sale (from pounds 50 upwards). Snap them up.
