EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back in time to the enchanting Frost Fair on the frozen River Thames in London, January 1749. The image captures a stretch of the river from Westminster Hall to the Temple, showcasing an array of stalls that line its icy surface. As we delve into this historical moment, we discover that these stalls serve two distinct purposes: sheet music booths and printing booths. Intriguingly, customers can be seen gathered around the printing booths, eagerly awaiting their turn to have their names stamped on prints of this extraordinary fair. It is a testament to human ingenuity and creativity that even amidst freezing temperatures and challenging conditions, people found ways to engage in leisure activities and celebrate life. The atmosphere depicted in this photograph is one of bustling energy as both males and females, young boys included, immerse themselves in the festivities. Despite being surrounded by frosty weather and outdoor elements, they find joy within this temporary fairground set up on ice-covered waters. As we gaze at this remarkable snapshot from history captured by Rischgitz/Hulton Archive/Getty Images), it serves as a reminder of how communities come together during challenging times - finding solace through shared experiences. This piece becomes not just a souvenir for Hannah Robinson but also an enduring symbol of resilience and celebration amidst adversity.
