Subject: RE: Bootlegging era songbooks
One of the most famous Prince Edward Island Schooners was called the Nellie J. Banks. The Nellie J. cruised the coast from Boston to PEI. A book was published on its feats and travels and PEI songwriter Lennie Gallant wrote a song aptly titled the Nellie J. banks which is well known in the maritimes and has been recorded frequently in the maritimes.
