romany gypsy trailers

  1968

Hughie and Alice Deadman's
new 22' Vickers.

Pictures taken in Scotland.

Inside the trailer: Alice Deadman with her son Hughie.
This photo shows clearly the style
and taste of the 'flash' travellers of
the time: Crown Derby, lace trimmed
and tasselled blinds, lace tablecloth, Welsh blanket on the bunk. Note also the 'bedding box' still a useful feature in the trailer at this time.
