Winter Carnival February 1969


Here are some photos of the 1969 Winter Carnival - the theme this year was "Iceterical History"

Here is one of the statues under construction by Sherman Gym. All photos on this page were taken in February of 1969 on Kodachrome II film using a Miranda G camera.
A few days later it was ready.
Another view.
A closeup of the detail work that goes into the statues.
Lots of time spent here.
Some of the smaller statues were done overnight by different groups, mostly just for fun and fueled with plenty of Boone's Farm Apple Wine ;).
