On this page are Photo's that have been sent to me and are "unknown" can you help Identify them if you can just email
me the first twp pictures were given to my friend Ken, from the Author G.E.C.Webb who wrote the excellent book
about local Gypsies in Hampshire and Dorset called, "Gypsies The Secret People" and who when a young boy visited, and lived near the "Heavenly Bottom" Encampment which was near to his home at the time in Parkstone .
Ken was only a young boy when he was given the photo's but would love to know who the folks are one of the pictures is the same picture as opposite page 113 in the book, but ken has a better and extended view of the scene.Thanks ken for the Pics. Ken thinks these pic's could have been taken near the New Forest.
Many thanks I now know who these folks are much apreciated and thanks for the folks who posted to let me know.
Can you help Identify any one in the Pictures?

Mother says the others are (from l-r): Aunt Lena ?, Aunt Betsy Smith,
Aunt Daisy Burton, and though she can't confirm who it is on the far
right., she thinks it may be Aunt Daisy's daughter who died young
giving birth.The later picture is as follows:-
This picture is from the late '40s or early '50s. From l-r: Aunt
