It's About Time
I found this blog "It's About Time" by Barbara Wells Sarudy, while searching for fortune teller images and I found it very interesting. You might also enjoy having a look around. Lot's of other categories to look through.

Very interesting collection. Thanks for the link. Shame they're low resolution, though.

Re: It's About Time
Thanks for that link Loyd. Love a lot of those paintings. A few years ago I bought this oil painting at Auction. I have no idea (nor did the auctioneer) as to who painted it but the subject struck a personal note as I have a very strong interest with fortune tellers and gypsies.

My maternal Great Grandfather was Romani who came from Albania but ended up in Greece in the late 1800s. Ive been to village where he and his people set up home several times over the years and its amazing to see the Romani influence in this village. Magic, superstition, curses, evil eyes, coffee cup readings, card readings are everyday occurrences there and a way of life. Rationale and logical explanations donít enter into the thought process.

They have lived this way of life for centuries and itís only now, as this current generation has branched away and the older generation passes away that things are starting to change and modernise. However- all these traditions will be lost and forgotten as time goes on. I have such fond and vivid memories, as a child, listening to the old women and men telling stories and fortunes to anyone who wanted to listen.
