JWB Folklore: Which Sailortown has Sand Street? (21) Folklore: Which Sailortown has Sand Street? 25 Jun 04

There's an old sea song that begins, "I was rolling down Sand Street one fine summer's night". I've come across references to Great Howard Street (Liverpool), Ratcliffe Highway (London), and South Street (NYC) in sailor songs, but this is the only Sand Street I've seen. Hugill's "Sailortown" doesn't list it in the index, so I'm turning to the font of all trivia, Mudcat.

Which old sailortown had a Sand Street?
