Title: Sailors in port.
Description: Sailors relaxing on the deck of a ship. They are dancing to the fiddler's music and enjoying the company of girls. Although seamen would often visit taverns and brothels ashore, it was not unknown for prostitutes to be brought on board navy and merchant vessels when they were in port.
