Victorian illustration to download showing a gipsy family on the eve of Derby Day. The mother and children gather round a makeshift tent: one boy fetches wood, while the mother stirs food in a cauldron over a fire. The men put up a booth in front of a caravan. Derby Day was traditionally an opportunity for gipsies to make money by selling souvenirs, fortune telling, and begging.
