Sunday Drunks

James Welch, general dealer, Session Street and Robert Munro, a warehouseman, Lochee Road went for a drive on Sunday in a spring van. They visited Alyth and Blairgowrie and had apparently taken full advantage of being bona-fide travellers, as they reached Dundee on Sunday night they were in a helpless condition. A crowd collected around the van in Hilltown and the police were attracted to the scene. Munro was ordered to pay a fine of 15s or go to prison for 10 days while Welch was fined £1 with the alternative of 14 days in jail.
