Stow Horse Fair MCF01_02_1051

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD, COTSWOLD, GLOUCESTERSHIRE. Looking over a crowd of men towards an auctioneers rostrum at the Stow Horse Fair, with a white horse at the centre of the crowd.
The auctioneers on the rostrum are from Cotswold auctioneers and valuers Tayler & Fletcher.
A fair in Stow has been in existence for over 500 years when a charter was granted in 1476 for it to take place twice a year in May and October. Originally a place to sell sheep as the trade in wool declined, the fair became a horse fair attracting gypsies and travellers from all over the country

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the essence of the Stow Horse Fair in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. As we gaze upon the image, our eyes are drawn to a bustling crowd of men, their faces filled with anticipation and excitement. In the center of this lively scene stands a majestic white horse, its presence commanding attention from all who lay eyes upon it. The focal point of this historic event is undoubtedly the auctioneers on the rostrum. Representing Cotswold auctioneers and valuers Tayler & Fletcher, they skillfully navigate through their duties amidst a sea of eager buyers and curious spectators. The atmosphere is electric as bids are called out and deals are struck. Dating back over 500 years, this fair holds deep-rooted significance in English history. Originally established as a place for sheep trade when wool was at its peak, it has evolved into an iconic horse fair that attracts gypsies and travelers from far and wide. This annual gathering serves as both a celebration of tradition and an opportunity for commerce to flourish. Through Katherine MacFee's lens, we catch a glimpse into the vibrant world of Stow Horse Fair during the 1920s. People from different walks of life come together in pursuit of equine excellence while immersing themselves in customs passed down through generations. This photograph immortalizes not only an event but also embodies themes such as community spirit, cultural heritage, and timeless traditions that continue to shape our society today.
