EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the frosty winter of 1683-84, as depicted in this enchanting illustration by Pauline Baynes titled "Frost Fair on the Thames." This historical scene captures the unique and fascinating Frost Fair that took place on the frozen River Thames in London during this century. The thick ice allowed market stalls, traders, and entertainers to set up shop, creating a bustling and lively atmosphere. Londoners, bundled up against the cold, can be seen enjoying the various delights of the fair. Some are haggling over goods at the market stalls, while others are trying their hand at ice skating on the frozen river. A trader, dressed in period attire, offers a wares from his makeshift stall, while a skater glides by on the ice. In the background, a brazier crackles with warmth, providing respite from the biting cold. Pauline Baynes, a renowned English illustrator, beautifully captured the spirit of this historical event in her painting, which was created in 1951 for the book "Holly Leaves" by E. Nesbit. This illustration offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us to a time when the Thames froze over and Londoners came together to celebrate and make the most of the winter weather.
