9780862872977: Gypsies and Gentlemen

This is the chronicle of a vehicle which only a hundred years ago was the plaything of the rich, a new invention borrowed from the tinkers and the gypsies...Yet there is no word for "caravan" in the Romany language. Caravans only became a practical proposition when metaled roads began to be introduced, in the mid-nineteenth century. Since then, they have been the height of fashion and the symbol of low necessity, enjoying popularity and scorn in equal measure. People from all walks of life have taken to the open road.
