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.

    I have been wondering that myself. The best I can make out is that it’s a wigwam style bender tent with a thick, tight cover of some kind. It’s very interesting.
