Group of Maskers on St. Charles Avenue, 1905

Dave Hennen Morris and Miss Hazel Ellis ruled as King and Queen of Carnival on March 7, 1905. Morning temperatures that day were in the mid-60s and the skies were overcast with a trace of rain falling over the course of the day. The weather appears to have had no ill effect on the day, though, as the Daily Picayune proclaimed that, “There has not been an unpleasant incident in the whole Carnival, and that of 1905 will pass into history as one of the most successful ever known.”
