The Stooke collection.

 Traveller vehicles were an integral part of the free festival scene of the late seventies to the middle nineties, they were home to many who had no other means of shelter or who wanted to flee the constrictions of the city . Artist David Stooke had his own bus (the green Bristol featured below) and took a number of photos of various traveller busses in and around Salisbury between 1986-1992. We are extremely fortunate that David has graciously allowed us to display his photos here for the public to enjoy, why not visit his website and view his excellent paintings of festivals of the past and also his more recent work which encompasses a wide range of subject matter.
