The Heaviest of Swells
Have You Seen Ruth
Published: Hopwood & Crew c.1869
Music: George Leybourne arr. Alfred Lee
Lyrics: George Leybourne
Have You Seen Ruth – A cover designed by H. C. Maguire, and his illustration of Leybourne as the protagonist is brim full of character detail. A story of unrequited love - the man has fallen for a Quakeress whose parents will not allow them to meet.
