    Gus Elen, the Coster Comedian, sings of how he has lost his pal - "since he's wed, he's had to knuckle down...". Jim, his pal has met and married. "They haven't been married not a month or more, when underneath her thumb goes Jim.... Oh! Isn't it a pity that the likes of her, should put upon the likes of him".

    This print is dark and the sound is a little muffled.
