This little Scottish lad so gay
A Swift's Premium Oleomargarine postcard, 1912. "This little Scottish lad so gay, Can dance the Highland Fling all day. Thus dressed in kilts of plaid of stripes, Accompanied by the old bagpipes, The happy boy, when so arrayed, Will catch the eye of any maid." Brand advertisers used trading cards and postcards with fanciful illustrations of historical figures, ethnic dance and dress, and famous stories, and issued these in collections.
