"Last Of Scotland's Dry Towns Now Wet
(AP) - The Scots of Kirkintilloch voted 5,293-4,858 to allow pubs in the town for the first time in almost half a century.
Residents in 1920 voted pubs out under a local option and the drys won five polls in the 48 years since.
Kirkintilloch, a town of 24,000, was the last of Scotland's dry districts."

A surprisingly high turnout. And pretty close.
