Ranging from the Charleston to the Tango, to many specific songs of the era, this unique collection captures the spirit of America in the early twentieth century. With more than 200 sheet music covers, from rare original art, it ranges from the Ragtime through Big Band eras, featuring the music of Scott Joplin, Cole Porter, and many others.
This is the popular music of its day reflecting the dreams and concerns of the period, from "Somewhere in France Is the Lily" and "Roses of Picardy" to "Hawaiian Sunset" and "On the Beach at Bali-Bali", these poster style images reflect the moods of the period in these mainly colour and highly evocative images.
The images are ideal for nostalgic themes and close ups of female faces, love-struck couples, romantic scenes, with a selection of action and event based images from the wartime period. Illustrations:
