A True Description of the Blanket Fair on the River Thames in the Time of the Great Frost in the Year of Our Lord 1683

EDITORS COMMENTS
is an intriguing and captivating engraving that offers a glimpse into a unique moment in London's history. The image, part of the Mayson Beeton Collection held by Historic England Photo Library, depicts a bustling scene on the frozen River Thames, where people from all walks of life have gathered to participate in the Blanket Fair. The Great Frost of 1683 was an exceptional weather event that brought the Thames to a standstill, allowing the riverbed to be exposed and transforming it into a makeshift marketplace. The engraving captures the spirit of this communal event, with vendors selling a variety of goods spread out on blankets, while others engage in games and activities on the ice. The process coloured engraving, created from a contemporary woodcut, provides a rich and detailed representation of the scene. The key at the bottom of the image helps to identify various aspects of the fair, from the different types of merchandise being sold to the various activities taking place. This engraving offers a fascinating insight into London's past, providing a glimpse into the everyday lives of its inhabitants during a remarkable period of weather and history. The Blanket Fair on the River Thames in 1683 was a unique event that brought people together in a time of adversity, and this image serves as a reminder of the resilience and resourcefulness of the human spirit.
