Question: Can you tell me what a "Long Song Seller" did in London in 1890.  I found this as the occupation of a great-great-uncle and not sure what it is.

 

Answer: The occupation of a "Long Song Seller" was one who sold sheet music.  Not a dealer of sheet music in a store, but one who sold it from a street booth as a vendor.
