The Cow Palace was packed to the gills last weekend, with folks scuttling about in Victorian garb and civilians gawking and attempting to make the most of the abundant photo-ops in the dimly-lit venue. Chimney sweeps with soot-dusted faces strolled along, two blokes ran around with foils and did battle wherever they pleased and others wore top hats with notes on them proclaiming their confidence in a certain Green Fairy. See more shots from our Saturday afternoon dip into Christmas past below.
