Wagons are the exception

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.

    1. It’s impossible to make such a sweeping generalization about several million travelling people at all times and places. There are earlier continental illustrations of some very sophisticated tentage as well as depictions of very poor-looking brush shelters. It seems that the bender we know today is more of a British Isles traveller/homeless/poor nomad structure.
