Cartoon by "Psi" (Ian Phillips) in Glasgow University Magazine 30 April 1924. Entitled "A peep into the future", it shows two tramps sitting under a tree reminiscing about the past. The "punch-line", that both are graduates, is a comment on fears of unemployment at a time of economic recession in Scotland. There is an advertisement for a popular brand of whisky, John Begg's Blue Cap, in the background.
