Wagons, tents and camps
Left. This very interesting postcard appears in two coloured versions and this b&w one (there may be a b&w in the other version but I have yet to see one). I found some evidence that it was taken in Scotland but clearly they are not Nawken. I think they are Scandinavian Gypsies. Dates from c 1904 so might be connected with the famous 'German' invasion but look to me to be different people.

The following ten photos show wagon, which I got in (I think) 1958 and had to sell in about 1968. My name isn't yet on the side in the first picture.
