Four Traveller Families

A remarkable image of four Traveller families together at Newton Stewart. Here are Perthshire Stewarts, Argyllshire Cambells, Cumberland Morrisons and Galloway Marshalls. There is a certain breezy light-heartedness about the tinkler that enables him to rise superior to the misery of his lot. Their upbringing is of the hardiest order: miserable shelter from exposure; always on the border of starvation, and yet they are not usually prone to commit other than the most trifling offences.
