It was a popular Sunday treat for the middle classes of Glasgow in 1806 to travel out by phaeton (a 4 wheeled horse-drawn carriage) to visit the Falls of Clyde.
After one such trip the visitors commented in The Monthly Mirror a well read magazine of the time that...
"Carluke was a place of Presbyterian gloom.."
This incensed a certain W.R. of Carluke to write to the Mirror with a rebuff which is shown on the click-through page above. Read and be amused.
