Central Park

You are viewing a stunning Thomas Nast drawing of New York's Central Park in Wintertime.  The picture shows a variety of images of people in Central Park.  In the center illustration, a number of people are seen ice skating.  Below it, horse drawn sleighs are shown gliding across the frozen pond. A family is pictures buying Hot Coffee in a local shop.  People are also seen warming themselves in front of a wood stove. 

At the top of the page is a picture of Jack Frost.  This is one of the earliest illustrations of this fanciful man.  Thomas Nast was responsible for developing the popular image of Jack Frost, and this is one of his earliest drawings featuring Jack Frost.
