text excerpt

A drunken man even if he was a nuisance could be dealt with, and even if he was belligerant [sic],well the arm of the law could deal with that as well, but a drunken woman was a different problem altogether. There were no Police Women then and if (as often happened) the lady in question either refused or was unable to co-operate, then the only solution was a handcart if no other conveyance was available.

 

[…] Needless to say the sight of a singing, shouting, drunken woman on a cart, kicking her legs in the air to the accompaniment of the ribald remarks of passers by, did nothing to uphold the dignity of the law.
