William ('Wullie') Flint Frame et al. in Glasgow - in the beginning of the 1860's

from W.F. Frame Tells His Own Story, pages 21–22:

Suddenly I discovered that I possessed the knack of delivering comic songs. It came as a revelation to me, and I determined to follow that line of business. The first comic song I sung in public was entitled, “My nobby new white hat.” Then followed “Jock Tamson’s Tripe,” which was to the tune of “The Cork Leg.” I was fairly successful, although I certainly did not “bring down the house.”
