Galloway Travellers

Calderari Gypsies

Period:
Early 20th Century
Description:
In July 1906 a group of Calderari Gypsies from Germany passed through Galloway. McCormick visited them with a German-speaking interpreter.

The prospect of a visit to a gypsy encampment always thrills me with a delightful excitement, and the fact of my Gypsies being on this occasion foreigners, and the Romanes differing widely from English Romanes, made my proposed visit unusually exciting.
