Item Code: 2021-182

Stereoview marked on the mount as by H.H. Bennett of Kilbourn City, Wisconsin, made for the St. Paul Ice Carnival of 1886-1887-1888 and marked as number 1567. The festival was started in 1886 in response to some disparaging eastern newspaper reports that insinuated the area was another Siberia during the winter and not fit for human habitation. The first festival featured an immense ice palace, lit by electric lights, parades and various amusements and events. Winter sporting and leisure activities like the toboggan slide, snowshoeing, etc. are mixed with the text at either end of the card mount of this stereoview. Members of the Lakota tribe were also invited to set up a village and this shows a young native American man in buckskins, holding a war club down at his side, standing in front of two teepees. Some houses and even an electric pole are visible in the distance at left. The clarity and tones are excellent. As a side note, the city’s winter carnival continues to this day. [sr] [ph:m]
