High ceiling, mollycroft, and some beautiful woodwork

A real work of art.

A real work of art.

This is an awesome Burton wagon (waggon).  These monstrosities are extremely heavy and somewhat limited for travel due to the smaller wheels.  Very popular with showmen as well as the more prosperous Romany in their heyday in Britain.

This is part of a series of images, mostly Romany, Irish and Scottish Travellers collected from around the internet.  Many of these historic images found on the web are without citation.  When a clear link to a source is found, I try to include it.  If a source is known, please pass it on and I will gladly include it or remove it if necessary.
