The Old Pelt Club

"The Old Pelt Club", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.

This comic song is about the members of the Old Pelt Club, who met by the Drygate Bridge to present a wig to one of their number. One man, much the worse for drink, fell into the Lady Well but was hauled out by a passing policeman.
