"Jock, Man, Hoo's Your Toorie?", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.
This song is about a "country loon's" first visit to Glasgow. The poor fellow is tormented and ridiculed in the streets as a bumpkin and then, after confusing reality with artifice at a waxworks, he is arrested by the police and fined for breaching the peace.
A "toorie bunnet" is a hat decorated with a pompom and was fashionable in country districts.
