Glue gravy for football supporters

Saturday, April 8 – 1905
Stolen glue was used by Robert Woolfenden (who, for receiving it, was sentenced to two months’ imprisonment at Oldham on Saturday) to “strengthen” and thicken the gravy in the pies which he sold at football matches and outside theaters. Isaiah Stafford was sent to prison for three months for stealing the glue.
