||ILASCO, MO - Pictured here is a gypsy
family who has parked its wagon and set up a tent near Ilasco, Mo.
Gypsies had negative reputations and were seldom welcome in a community so
this family probably moved on after a few days. As towns went,
Ilasco was slightly more accommodating than nearby Hannibal.
