MISSOURI COLLECTION: “Gypsy Family at Ilasco, MO.” (1910-15)

Gypsy Family at Ilasco, MO.

Pictured here is a gypsy family who has parked its wagon and set up a tent near Ilasco, Mo. Gypsies had negative reputations and were seldom welcome in a community so this family probably moved on after a few days. As towns went, Ilasco was slightly more accommodating than nearby Hannibal.
