The Scotsman who had his money's-worth
Humorous illustration by H. M. Bateman showing a rotund and satisfied Scottish man sitting at a restaurant table, having managed to eat everything on the set price lunch menu while a waiter removes a tall pile of empty plates. The picture satirically makes reference to the myth that Scottish people are traditionally miserly.
