1810s 1814 Frost Frozen Tent Tents


EDITORS COMMENTS
A Winter Wonderland on the Thames: A Glimpse into the Thames Frost Fair of 1814 The enchanting scene depicted in this 1810s Christmas card transport us back in time to the magical Thames Frost Fair of 1814. The frozen river Thames, a rare occurrence in London, became the stage for an extraordinary event that drew thousands of people. The card's image captures the essence of the fair, with its icy landscape dotted with colorful tents and makeshift structures. People of all walks of life are seen gathered around fires, enjoying the festivities, and exploring the various stalls and attractions. The snow-covered trees and the frozen river add to the winter wonderland atmosphere, making it a truly unforgettable sight. The Thames Frost Fair was a unique phenomenon that only occurred when the river froze over sufficiently to allow people to walk on it. The fairground attractions included ice skating, sledding, and even boat races. Vendors sold hot food and drinks to keep visitors warm, while others offered games and trinkets. This Christmas card is a beautiful reminder of the Thames Frost Fair, an event that brought the people of London together to celebrate the magic of the winter season. The image, captured by Terry Parker and available through Mary Evans Picture Library, offers a glimpse into a bygone era and a chance to relive the enchantment of a frozen Thames and the joy of a traditional winter fair.
