"Red Roofs, Glasgow" Youth playing on canal at Maryhill, Glasgow.

Until the 60's children used to play with a gird and cleek, usually on the street or playground, in this case on the ice. The idea is to make the circular part (gird) roll along the ground and to keep it rolling by flicking it with the rod/stick (Cleek). Watch out Moshi Monsters there might be a comeback!
