I have set up this page to organize and share some of the large number of wagon, caravan, and traveller related art amassed over years of searching on the web and scanning open source stuff.
Paul Friederich Meyerheim (1842-1914) documented lots of things but is probably best known for documenting animals, especially in circuses, shows, and pulling carts. Not exactly a caravan but still good stuff.
The Tinker, a beautiful image of a tinker plying his trade.
A caravan party on the road in France. Simple accommodations but inevitably being hassled by the gendarme.
Toad’s Waggon, from the Wind in the Willows; a wonderful book.
Some scans found on the web are below. I will reference when I find a source.
And below, a nifty little sheep wagon shown to me by an elderly gentleman in Monticello, Utah.
