Carnival designs from New Orleans

A New Heaven: float design from Krewe of Proteus 1898 parade. Theme: A trip to Wonderland.

A very random selection from a vast collection (5545 items) of designs for carnival floats and costumes at the Louisiana Digital Library. BibliOdyssey had a post about New Orleans carnival designs a couple of years ago, and the plates featured there are also present in the LDL collection.
