1715 1716 Fairs Frost Frozen


EDITORS COMMENTS
A Frozen Marvel: The Unforgettable Frost Fair on the Thames, 1715-1716 This evocative image transports us back in time to an extraordinary event that unfolded on the Thames over two extraordinary months, from November 24, 1715, to February 9, 1716. The river, which had frozen solid due to an unusually harsh winter, became the stage for a remarkable spectacle known as the Frost Fair. The Thames, usually a bustling hub of maritime activity, was transformed into a sprawling winter wonderland. People from all walks of life flocked to the frozen river to partake in a myriad of activities, from ice-skating and sledging to setting up temporary stalls and games. The scene depicted in this photograph is a snapshot of the vibrant and lively atmosphere that enveloped the Frost Fair. The frozen river provided a unique opportunity for the people of London to enjoy themselves in the midst of the harsh winter. Merchants and vendors set up shop on the ice, selling everything from food and drink to souvenirs and trinkets. Entertainers, including acrobats, jugglers, and musicians, performed for the crowds, adding to the festive spirit. Despite the harsh conditions, the Frost Fair brought the community together, providing a much-needed respite from the hardships of everyday life. The image of the Frost Fair on the Thames is a testament to the resilience and ingenuity of the human spirit, as well as a fascinating glimpse into the history of London during a remarkable time. This photograph, from the extensive collection of Mary Evans Picture Library, offers a captivating glimpse into the past, transporting us back to a time when the Thames froze over, and the people of London came together to create an unforgettable winter wonderland.
