Flounder on the line

copyright © Olsen 2015

Mrs Irean MacCaskie had just purchased a flounder for her husbands’ Friday night tea. It had accidently fallen from her bag as she had crossed the tram line, to catch the busy five o-clock Maryfield tram. As everybody knows dog’s of Dundee are very fond of fish. A passing dog found the flounder and began to scoff it, on the line. An approaching tram failed to impress the dog with the necessity of moving, and the driver was forced to stop his car to avoid a disaster. The dog, stubborn in nature, would not move till it had eaten poor Mr James MacCaskies tea.



Inspired from a story found in the Dundee Press and Journal, Sunday the 18th of June 1921
