Title
Jock McShane
Description
An elderly man with patched trousers stands on an Edinburgh street with his hand held out towards passersby. He has a package held beneath one arm.

The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Jock McShane

Everywhere that McShane calls
they're pleased to see his face.
His blackening in farthing balls
will warm up the fireplace
which, gleaming bright
lights up each living space.
