Humours of Glasgow Fair

"Humours of Glasgow Fair", a song which has been preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 held at the Mitchell Library.

These verses describe two friends' eventful visit to the Fair and its "Rowly-powly, wild beasts, wheels of fortune/ Sweety stan's, Mr Punch and Black Jock." What a hully-baloo, indeed!
