A Backie Down The Road is an original pencil drawing by Alexander Millar.

“A 'Backie', a 'Coal Carry' or a 'Piggy Back' are local terms for the same thing - and when you were too wee to walk all day but too big to be carried in your folk's arms - this was a brilliant option.

It gave you the chance to see the world for a grown-up's point of view, so even if you weren't that tired you'd ask for a 'backie' just for the fun of it.

This original pencil drawing is in a dramatic dark grey, wood grain effect frame and can be viewed in our Glasgow Gallery or purchased online here.
