Figure 1.--This Scottisih school boy carries a portfolio-type book bag that was popular with boys at private schoold during the 1980s.
Scottish boys have have used bookbags much like English boys. The continental over-the-shoulder type of book bag used by European boys does not seem to have been common in Scotland. Boys at private schools in the 1980s had porfolio type bags, but these were less common at state schools. I'm not sire what type of book bags boys had in earlier times.
