Stow Horse Fair MCF01_02_1052

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD, COTSWOLD, GLOUCESTERSHIRE. Looking over a crowd of men towards an auctioneers rostrum at the Stow Horse Fair, with a dark 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 vibrant atmosphere of the Stow Horse Fair in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. As we gaze upon the image, our eyes are drawn to a dark horse standing proudly at the center of a bustling crowd of men. The scene unfolds before us as we witness an auction taking place on an elevated rostrum, presided over by Cotswold auctioneers and valuers Tayler & Fletcher. The Stow Horse Fair holds a rich history that spans over five centuries, dating back to 1476 when it was granted a charter to take place twice a year in May and October. Originally established as a marketplace for sheep trading during the decline of wool trade, this fair has transformed into an iconic horse fair that attracts gypsies and travelers from all corners of the country. In this snapshot frozen in time, we catch glimpses of people engaged in lively conversations while horses stand patiently nearby. This image encapsulates not only the spirit of commerce but also customs and traditions deeply rooted within this community. It serves as a testament to how events like these bring together diverse groups - gypsies, travelers, locals - fostering connections and preserving cultural heritage. Katherine MacFee's masterful capture transports us back to the 1920s when this photograph was taken. Through her lens, she immortalizes this momentous gathering steeped in history and folklore – forever reminding us of its significance within British culture.
