Sheet Music Continued...

This group of old sheet music features the sentimental favorites...overly romantic perhaps...but with such beautiful covers and colors. The music mainly featured waltzes and songs popularly sung in the parlors of America.
Then as now, romance and a pretty face is used to sell copies!

Notice how many of them feature roses too. Surely a way to get to many a heart.

In an era of no TV or radio, music was a large piece of their entertainment, whether played or sung. I long sometimes for that innocence and get lost in a reverie of simpler times.
