EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative woodcut engraving, titled "Frost Fair upon the Thames in the reign of Charles II," transports us back to a unique moment in London's history. Dated 1683, this image captures the scene of a Frost Fair held on the frozen River Thames. The Thames, usually a bustling hub of maritime activity, had become a solid expanse of ice, providing an unusual platform for entertainment and commerce. The engraving shows a lively scene of people from all walks of life gathered on the ice. Merchants sell their wares from makeshift stalls, gamblers engage in lively games, and entertainers perform for the crowds. In the background, the iconic London skyline, including the Tower of London and St. Paul's Cathedral, adds to the sense of familiarity and historical context. The Frost Fairs on the Thames were a series of fairs that took place when the river froze over during particularly harsh winters. The first recorded Frost Fair was in 1607, but the most famous one occurred in 1683, the year depicted in this engraving. The event drew large crowds, with estimates suggesting that up to 100,000 people attended. This woodcut engraving, part of the Mayson Beeton Collection held by Historic England, offers a fascinating glimpse into London's past. It not only showcases the city's resilience and adaptability but also highlights the importance of community and the human spirit in the face of adversity.
