Kev, They look like they sure lived rough, to what they live in now.
the council has set up a permanent travellers site at Oil Street, which seems a contradiction in terms to me - one resident has lived in Liverpool for 30 years.
Gypsies conjure up a very romantic image but you do not see many true Romany People now sadly. i remember they used to attend the local Horse Fairs and i can remember them showing off Horses for Sale up and down a High Street. Where i live i see the they are going to spend £ 1,000000 on a new travellers site yet we do not even have decent hospital facilities..
