Turtle George (Williams) Songster "O, Take Me Back To Baltimore"

Also featured are minstrel song lyrics, jokes, ads for novelty/joke items, and many cartooned racist depictions of black minstrels. "Have You Seen George? He's A Ladies' Man" The photo of George used on the cover is from a WENDT cabinet card photo (see Catalogue #2711).
