A Sailor’s Alphabet

The song is from Stan Hugill’s Shanties of the Seven Seas. The sketch of sailors entertaining the locals seems to have come from Boys and Girls Bookshelf (New York, NY: The University Society, 1920) The artist of what appears to be a cheery British scene may be Charles E Brock, Henry Matthew Brock, or perhaps one of the other two brothers.
