spacer Liliputians In Fairyland

This month's cover story features the history of the wildly popular operetta and Ilion's own production of the spectacular melodrama "Liliputians" in Fairyland or Cruise of the Polar Star. These images are from physical photograph albums of the Carney family. They show family cast members of the production held in June 1901 in Ilion. The show was held under the auspices of the Ave Maria Church, now known as Annunciation Parish.

Although the images were first published on the alumni site, in October 2004, the images are not from a Halloween event.
