Djibouti, Two women water carriers Featured Print

Djibouti, Two women water carriers

A very odd photographic postcard from Djibouti, East Africa, featuring two women of starkly differing physical stature. On the left is a small woman smoking a large cigarette and on the right is a huge woman of considerable stature, supporting a large water jug on her hip. They are standing in front of a wall made out of packing case slats. Date: circa 1910s

Ice Palace - Montreal, Canada

The Ice Palace erected in the Dominion Square, Montreal, Canada during the Winter Festival of 1885.

At each end stood towers thirty-eight feet high, and at the sides pairs of round towers extended up to a height of forty four feet. The main tower at the centre of the palace reached to a height of one hundred feet! A.C. Hutchinson designed the Winter Festivals Ice Palaces between 1883-89.
