John Stuart Blackie

Blackie was a Radical and Scottish nationalist in politics, but of a fearlessly independent type; he was one of the characters of the Edinburgh of the day, and was a well-known figure as he went about in his plaid, worn shepherd-wise, wearing a broad brimmed hat, and carrying a big stick.
