EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by Katherine MacFee transports us back to the 1920s, capturing a moment of vibrant trade and tradition in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. The scene unfolds with a magnificent steam-powered vehicle leading a procession of gypsy caravans towards the renowned Stow Horse Fair. As the caravans pass by a picturesque row of houses, our attention is drawn to a young boy standing in the foreground, his curious gaze fixated on this mesmerizing spectacle. In this snapshot frozen in time, we witness not only the convergence of people and animals but also an intersection between commerce and custom. The bustling activity surrounding these nomadic travellers highlights their integral role in shaping local economies through their unique trades and crafts. The presence of both traction engine and steam engine serves as a testament to the evolving road transport technology during that era. It symbolizes progress while still honoring age-old traditions cherished by gypsies and travellers alike. Katherine MacFee's masterful composition captures not just an image but also emotions evoked by witnessing such scenes firsthand. This photograph invites us to reflect upon our own connection to history, reminding us that customs passed down through generations continue to shape our present-day society. As we admire this remarkable piece from Historic England's collection, let us appreciate its power to transport us across time and space - immersing ourselves in an era where horse fairs were grand events celebrated with awe-inspiring displays like these.
