"The Flower O' Sauchieha'", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.
This is a love song dedicated to a young lady who lived on Sauchiehall Street. The poet, Dr John Ballantyne, is largely (and surely deservedly!) unknown today.
