These were about a century ago highly popular and very common as 'Musical Monologues'. Bransby Williams was the main artiste and there was a whole series of sheet music produced. I used to have a collection of them. I expect if you Googled Bransby Williams you would get a list of about a 100 of them, some well-known even today.
