The above image is from 1867: Double-page hand colored wood engraving featured in Frank Leslie’s Illustrated newspaper titled, “A Happy New Year.”
This and other delightful historical New Year’s Eve images can be found here.
I especially love this rural frolic:
It’s not even 9:00 here in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and already I can hear fireworks.
Happy New Year, one and all!
