"The Hillsborough By-Pass: a Conversation between the A1 and the Hillsborough By-Pass at the time of the opening of the latter" - Patric Stevenson, 1974

I came across this again recently, I have a pamphlet version of it dated 1974. It was written by the artist Patric Stevenson, who was inspired by the Scottish poet Robert Fergusson:

"Whilst a' ye dae is makin' Sunday
Jist like a Saturday or Monday,
Encouragin' the non-devout
Till mitch frae kirk an' gad about
Neglectin' a' religious duties
Fer picnic sites an' scenic beauties..."
