The Broons – every year growing up we’d have either an Oor Willie annual in our Christmas stocking or a Broons one. Beautifully pen & brush ink work by Dudley D. Watkins for DC Thompson they epitomized the straightforward Scottish character of the Twentieth Century.

Maw & Paw Broon with their eight children: Hen, Daphne, Joe, Maggie, Horace, the Twins and The Bairn. And Gran’paw too.

This is a great spread of the parents trying to get away for a peaceful weekend only to be overrun by their offspring and friends.

As they would declare: “Jings, Crivvens an’ help m’Boab!”
