Fashion & Sheet Music, 1910s

I have access to a hoard of old sheet music, and since I don’t play anything anymore, I’m using it for other purposes. I’m finding the covers a nice resource for looking at women’s hair, hats, makeup and clothes. They’re great examples of designs of the times – some of these are so evocative of the year(s) they were printed.

So I’ve listed a bunch of the oldest ones below. I don’t know all their dates. The earliest dated one is 1908, and they go up to about 1920. If I knew the date I added it below – I’ll add the rest at a later point. I’ll also add all the ones from about 1920-1930 in a new post. Those are pretty neat, too.

Okay, I’m not going to write a lot about them, here they are!

About Amanda Goebel

I'm an Anthropology / Fashion History and Material Culture graduate from The University of Delaware, currently working on a Master's in Museum Studies. I'm a living historian interested in costume and culture from years before. I love researching the mundane and the everyday that has changed or disappeared since. I re-enact the 18th century, and I recreate clothing from that time. This blog is where I'll write about my research and projects. View all posts by Amanda Goebel
