Old Photograph Gypsies Stanely Perthshire Scotland

Old photograph of Gypsies camped outside Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland. Many Gypsy families carry clan names like Macfie, Stewart, MacDonald, Cameron, Williamson and Macmillan. They follow a nomadic or settled lifestyle; passing from village to village and are more strongly identified with the native Gaelic speaking population. Continuing their nomadic life, they would pitch their tents on rough ground on the edge of the village and earn money there as tinsmiths, hawkers, horse dealers or fishing for pearl. Many found seasonal employment on farms, e.g. at the berry picking or during harvest.
