New Orleans Carnival 1903

I have been fascinated by this stunning image for afew months now, and I've finally discovered its source

"The Telling-Grandon Scrapbook is a 28-page scrapbook/diary containing photographs and ephemera collected by an Evanston, Illinois group during a visit by train to the New Orleans Carnival of 1903. Two of the more prominent among these were an Irving Telling and Willie Grandon; thus the title of the collection, Telling-Grandon."

here are some more images from this amazing collection
