Happy International Worker's Day

This is a detail of the cover of "The Jolly Blacksmiths", a march by the extremely prolific E.T. Paull which was published in 1905. It's for sale in my second Etsy shop, but if it doesn't sell, I can give it to my sister's husband, who has some blacksmithing skills, is studying piano, and is fairly, well, jolly - in a reflective way. He loves the rosbif, too, as do these guys, I'm sure.

From the looks of their rosy cheeks, looks like these jolly gents may be imbibing ale with their rosbif.

I once thought I would have liked to be a blacksmith, though I doubt I'd ever be able to gain the skill.

Our counteractivists (back to Manchester) publically demand the abolishment of this holiday, saying it has lost its meaning and hereby proving its necessity.
