“From nowhere through a caravan. Around the campfire light. A lovely woman in motion. With hair as dark as night. Her eyes were like that of a cat in the dark. That hypnotized me with love. She was a gypsy woman.” This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty gypsy woman holding a tambourine. She is wearing flowers in her hair, large hoop earrings, and a beautiful smile. The lyrics in quotes above are from a 1970 song written by Curtis Mayfield and sung by Brian Hyland. The song is named “Gypsy Woman”. I would be remiss to not point out that the woman in this portrait postcard may not be a gypsy at all. Instead, she may be a non gypsy woman wearing a traditional folk costume from whatever country she hails from.   (SOLD)
