1914-1918 : The occupation


A Brussels magazine called the trailers installed in Anderlecht in 1915 “A Romanichel village”. They belonged to fairground people and stallholders, unemployed in wartime. Indeed, fairs and kermesses disappeared. These people were particularly hit by the difficulties to move freely across the land. The fairground communities settled in the outskirts of the cities, waiting for the conflict to end.
